Overview

A beautiful and sensuous woman, Freddie Walker, has fallen into the hands of a vain and greedy businessman, Jimmy Tate. His notorious reputation and illegal business practices allow him to take and make all the money he can.
To Jimmy's astonishment Freddie has fallen in love with another man and is ready to change her life. On a stormy night she has decided to take her children and leave Jimmy for good. When Jimmy finds out he goes berserk and attempts to kill her. But her best friend, Ruby Johnson, a woman of deep faith who has a special relationship with God, arrives just in time. Inside Freddie's dark bedroom a struggle ensues and Jimmy is killed.
The children are sent to foster homes and separated from one another. Freddie and Ruby are sent to prison. But did Ruby really kill Jimmy? What sacrifices did Freddie make for the sake of her children? What secrets did she keep from them? What is their legacy? As adults, will they have the courage to meet each other to find out?
"Two kinds of color" is the story of a mother's love and sacrifice for her divided children--a story of the real meaning of having a true best friend. It is the story of surrender; of having faith and belief in God. It is the story of the breaking and then the making of a family.
