  • Call to Adventure
  • Call to Adventure
  • August 25, DEAR MARTIN (AKA DR. KING),
  • Crossing the Threshold
  • Things aren't as equal as folks say they are.
  • Justyce is called to adventure when he is wrongfully arrested for the color of his skin and experiences extreme racism. 
  • The Challenges
  • He took a spot I didn't get because Yale has to fill a quota--
  • Justyce begins the adventure. He starts an experiment: writing letters to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to find out if his teachings still hold up.
  • The Challenges
  • WHY does this guy insist on trying to keep me down?
  • Justyce leaves the known world of his safe life as a normal high school student and enters the psychological unknown world of exploring racism, prejudice, and injustice.
  • The Challenges
  • She's a good friend, Ma.
  • Justyce faces judgement and ignorance at school from peers, including his classmate Jared. Eventually, Jared becomes more understanding and less blind to the struggles of others.
  • A group of gang members from Justyce's neighborhood try to keep him down and tell him he belongs with them. Justyce is torn between his roots and proving himself to people like Jared. Finally, Justyce almost joins their gang, but doesn't when he realizes he shouldn't be like them.
  • You'll be back, smart guy. We'll see you soon.
  • Justyce wants to have a relationship with his classmate and friend Sarah-Jane. However, he knows his mother does not approve because Sarah-Jane is white. Justyce eventually decides that he wants to have the relationship anyway, despite what he knows his mother will think.
  • And you'd do well to keep it that way.
