Based on

As a traditional-gender multi-racial writer,

I am sharing my personal reflection of American-living households and families(From Year of 1971 - 2020).

 

 

 

NOTE: The weekly sitcom episode can be found on my META/Facebook, a 

social media page. Adapted from Sherlene's memoir "A Compilation of Forgiveness" also published as "The Script in My Box: A Journal of Forgiveness".


Main Setting:

A fictitious rural southernly people-of-color neighborhood/town

where in 15 minutes one could be in a major urban, city-like, neighborhood with a diverse citizenship population. Two towns, communities, where households and families become aware of how to help each other, inwardly and outwardly in modern historical times. 

 

 

Character and Description: 

A large multiracial family, age newborn to 102.

 

Diverse working-class neighbors including 100% white households.

 

A low-income/fixed-rent apartment complex.

 

A black country-store owner and gas station.

 

Several event venues(a karaoke/comedy club, an outdoor-venue club, and movie theater).

 

 

A church community separated per standard race categories.

 

An outdated in-town police station that secretly rules the southern neighborhood, but no one really truly knows it until the recently-elected town mayor threatens to close it. The police station has lacked adequate government funding for decades, and the current police staff are overwhelmed with their discreet job tasks.
