Brother Mine

Brother Mine
by Eric C. Dente

Brother Mine is the compelling story of a young African-American man struggling to find his own cultural identity in a world of conflicting ideals.  Malcolm, adopted and raised by a loving Caucasian family, deals with pressure from his natural father to reject his upbringing and embrace his own heritage.  In the midst of this struggle he faces the possibility that his pregnant girlfriend may choose to terminate his progeny, while his drug addicted brother threatens to destroy the only family he has ever known.  As Malcolm strives to hold his world together, he finds himself walking the thin line between separatism and racism. Brother Mine explores the strength of family in our uncertain and often divisive society, and ultimately celebrates parenthood and humanity.
