Synopsis: Martin Luther King Jr.s powerful I Have a Dream speech gained greater notoriety after his untimely death in the sixties. Millions of black Americans were motivated to grab a piece of Kings dream despite not knowing how to make it a reality. The novel Dream in the Panhandle paraphrases Kings famous speech to illuminate the complexities involved in a societys movement toward equality. The story told through the writings of twelve-year-old Indigo Douglas is set in racially segregated Tallahassee, Florida the day after the news of Kings assassination came across the radio waves. Indigos parents' reaction to Kings death causes her to look beyond the world of her closeknit colored community to examine the lives of whites for the first time. Her examination begins with the affluent Whittner family who is her Aunt Sadies employer. As the nation grieves, deeply held family secrets are revealed and trigger chaos within the Douglas and Whittner families forcing them to see their commonality as well as their differences. Indigos father goes to prison as a result of his pro-King activism. Mr. Whittner risks his wealth as he reveals his Jewish heritage. Indigos mother embraces her previously unacknowledged bi-racial identity, while Mrs. Whittner remains vehemently intolerant. The contradictions between race, culture and power in this coming of age story become the canvas for Indigo to sketch a new generations concept of Kings dream.

About the Author: Gwen Parker Ames holds a doctorate from Columbia University Teachers College. Most of her career has been devoted to working with youth programs. She resides in New Jersey with her husband and son.
