Generations

NBC, Creator / Executive Producer / Head Writer

Ruth Marshall finally realizes her dream of owning the mansion she was raised in as the maid’s daughter, only to have it shattered by racist slurs against her family. Devastated, Ruth tries to sweep the incident under the rug but her friend, Doreen Jackson will not stand by and do nothing. Doreen arranges for a reporter from the Chicago Tribune to interview Ruth and exposes the hypocrites who live in their neighborhood. Ruth is furious over Doreen’s betrayal of her trust but Doreen feels Ruth has an obligation to fight racism wherever it exists even in her own backyard.
