Roscoe is a short story about two men, generations apart, who become unlikely friends.Set in Tulsa, OK in the late 1990s, Roscoe is about a reading tutor who becomes the student when he learns about a terrible event in Oklahoma history.
North Tulsa is not a place where a middle class, white teenager is usually found. Mark goes there to help Roscoe, a 97-year old black man, learn to read. Roscoe teaches him about the Tulsa Race Riot, one of the worst race riots in American history. Mark even faces racism himself when he ventures into a neighborhood he is not welcome in.
