Right man…wrong color?
LaShondra has done the work on herself first. She’s gotten her education and, more importantly, developed a strong relationship with Christ. Now, she’s ready for a man—but not just any man. She wants a Boaz, a godly man…who’s gainfully employed…and it would hurt if he looked good, too. God answers with three out of three, but there’s a twist: her perfect man, Stelson Brown, isn’t African-American.
While LaShondra’s parents are happy about her professional success, they’re chomping at the bit for her to get married. Her father (who wouldn’t even let her bring her white friends home from school) and her mother (who’s gets word about the white man through the church folk grapevine) will have more than a few words for her when they find out—if LaShondra ever gets around to telling her family and friends about Stelson.
The racial climate at LaShondra’s job isn’t helping the situation. LaShondra suspects that the principal is buffering grades for certain students. Can she keep her integrity while keeping her job as vice principal?
