New York City
The place is Around-the-way, USA. The folks who live on this block are family, friends and everyday faces. There is Dee who runs the neighborhood day care and takes care of all the 9-5 mama’s babies as her own son Jubi tries to take care of her. There’s the Cheatam clan who runs the Friday fish fry where you can always find the men in the family playing a game of spades. There’s Top Pop the elder (nobody knows how old exactly), Brother Kwan, a young father who just joined the Fruit of Islam, Uncle Hump Dump who often speaks of his ‘main man Pete’ and Cuzin’ Puddin’ who is a social worker and Top Pop’s favorite manchild. Just down the block is Lynn who sells incense, books and loves ladies with pretty feet. Across the street is the Church of Love Everlasting with Pastor Ebonise Preeds, whose son Louie is also dealing with his own loves and loss. And lastly there is The Last Stop, at the end of the block, where Ms. Invincible stands on a soap box which reads “Say Yo’ Peace” and speaks to the one who counts the stars.
