When a Harvard-educated sister from Brooklyn moves to the Midwest, she encounters unspeakable evil that threatens to tear apart the city’s Black community. Carman uncovers an existential secret that forces choices no sister should have to make. Will she expose the truth, wherever it may lead, and in the process fracture a community and destroy her career?

This provocative novel takes you deep into the heart of a decomposing America, and unearths a conspiracy the ancestors will do anything to keep buried...

After four hundred years and counting, Minnissippi poses the question, “When will we be free?”

Author J Shulman also wrote and directed the NAACP Image Award nominated film JUSTICE, and received the Emancipation Filmmaker Award. "Blueprint," the sequel to Minnissippi, will be released in late 2014.


Made by human rights lawyers and award-winning filmmakers, John Shulman and Jeanne-Marie Almonor, DOMESTICS tells the story of working class people of color and immigrants are targeted by big business, conservative politicians and the government’s corrupt “War on Terror.”

DOMESTICS features plot twists and turns that keep the audience on edge until the very end. The story’s young protagonists drive the plot in unexpected ways as they challenge the corrupt systems and beliefs their parents have abided for too long.

At the end, the movie raises uncomfortable questions that young people, and all people everywhere, must answer.
