Delphine has been responsible for her two younger sisters, Vonetta and Fern, ever since their mother up and left them seven years ago. One summer, however, the girls are sent from Brooklyn to Oakland to spend a month with their estranged mother Cecile—even though she really doesn’t want them there. To keep them out of her way, Cecile sends them to a day camp run by the Black Panthers, a revolutionary group of activists fighting for Black justice. The girls start to learn more about their family, their country, and themselves during their one crazy summer.
