Description:

Years in the making, this is the true story of writer Peter Calloway's grandfather, Nathaniel
Calloway, a Black man who graduated from medical school in the early 1930's. Unable to get work at any Chicago hospitals because he was Black, and unable to secure a loan from a bank to start his own practice because he was Black, he turned to another source of money in
Prohibition-era Chicago: the Mafia, run by none other than Al Capone.

As Calloway himself says, "On the one hand, his story represents the promise of Ameri-ca. On the other hand, it shows the worst of it."
