Overview

Told through the eyes of a young boy, When the Grass Was Blue poetically portrays the trials and hardships of growing up in the South during the Civil Rights era of the 1960s.

On the surface, Kathoor, the youngest child in a working-class African American family from Louisville, Kentucky, appears sheltered in a stable home with his working father, faithful mother, and cool big brother. But as dysfunction in his family becomes apparent, Kathoor senses their familial closeness slipping away�and he feels as though he�s losing the most important people in his life. Trying to adjust, Kathoor�s only option is to search for strength within his own heart.
