WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Brooklyn Quartet is a story about three kids who grow up together in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, who become best friends; who love each other, and who eventually almost destroy one another, and is told by an angel named Queen. It is an exploration of how life treats each of them, both individually and collectively, over the course of twenty years, quite differently, simply because of who each of them are. Saint is black, Jamaal is white and Esther is Latina. The story is sprinkled with racism, sexism and white privilege, but most importantly, Brooklyn Quartet is a love story.
