Raised by slaves in the pre-Civil war South, Augustus Freeman has lived as an African-American for over 150 years, carefully hiding his true nature even as he develops an ironclad creed of self-reliance - and amasses a fortune. But when he crosses paths with a young girl whose inner-city environment threatens to crush her dreams as it has with so many others, she inspires him to step out of the shadows and use his extraordinary powers for good.
