A biography of Benjamin Banneker, eighteenth-century African American mathematician and astronomer whose calculations of the locations of stars and planets for American almanacs were widely distributed from 1792 to1797. Born as a free slave in Baltimore County, Maryland, he was the son of an African slave Robert Bammeler, who had bought his own freedom, and Mary Banneky, who was the daughter of an Englishwoman and a free African slave. In 1791, Banneker and Major Andrew Wllicott surveyed a 10-mile square of the Federal Territory for a new national capital, which later became Washington, D.C. He forwarded a copy of his calculations and the survey to Thomas Jefferson, then secretary of state, with a letter criticizing Jefferson for his proslavery views and urging the abolishment of African American slavery. This exchange of letters between Banneker and Jefferson was published as a pamphlet, and was given wide publicity at the time.The two letters were also reprinted in Banneker's almanac for 1793

While Chris sets out to establish himself as a teacher, Lisa enters into a clandestine relationship with Anthony Cooper, a descendent of the town founder. But it is only when the pair run afoul of Doris Palmer'a woman desperate to keep her secret'that they feel the true weight of the collar that constrains Cooper Station's citizens.
