About

Years of Sky by Barbara Blatner

YEARS OF SKY chronicles the troubled but enduring love of a biracial couple whose love is bound to the Kennedy assassinations and nearly thirty years of American politics.

Part 1: 1963/Time on Fire   The grassy knoll: In love 17-year-olds David, African-American, and Stace, white, meet for the first time in public to see President Kennedy pass by, and scheme to spend their first night together that night. Believing JFK brings a new era of racial equality, anticipating a night in each other's arms, they defiantly hold each other as the motorcade approaches.      

Part 2: 1968/Path of the Sun   The morning of RFK’s death: David, committed to Black Power politics, at his father Ben’s Dallas electrical shop pines for Stace who we learn he abandoned on the knoll after JFK was shot. Ben accuses David of hypocrisy for wanting “that white girl.” Stace bursts in, distraught over RFK; her real mission is to get David back.  

Part 3: 1992/Years of Sky   The day the Rodney King verdict is announced in LA. Stacey and David finally fight their way to understanding and reaffirm their bond as race riots explode in LA.
