Rappers and gospel singers, on the streets and in their homes—different generations from the African American communities of Mansfield, Ohio, sharing their passions through music and gesture.

Kevin Jerome Everson was born in 1965, Mansfield Ohio. Since the 1980s he has directed numerous short films, and nine feature lengths. Most of these are anchored in the collection or staging of gestures, postures and attitudes of the black American working class.
