A Georgia slave in 1830 finds a seed can be used to topple the plantation system. He controls his rage and starts a chain of events where his son changes history.
Luther, a resourceful slave in 1830 controls his anger when he meets Moses, a British Black Freeman who seeks to bring down the plantation system. Moses has ties to a British bank and his connection leads Luther and Luther's son Sharpy to bring Georgia cotton seeds to Egypt.
Sharpy with his descendants use nonviolence to change Africa. The struggle goes from Egyptian growers who flood the US cotton market. In the process they start a self-sustaining Black Power that denies the Suez Canal to Europe's military.
Yet Sharpy has to return to America to encounter a new slavery in the factory system where he organizes strikes to raise the image of former slaves in the minds of White America. Sharpy finds a new threat looming from the banking industry striving for White businesses and war.
