The Opening is about a khem (black) hue-man being named Ja, from the planet Kebb who has a yearning for paradise in the stars and believes that the grass is greener on the other side... of the galaxy. Traveling through the Opening with his family, Ja finds a terrifying civilization where whites are the slave master and their blacks are enslaved. Ja, his family and other blacks endure a daily dose of psychological and physical peppering while only Leo Bonaparte, the Compound’s evil owner, knows who Ja really is. In a shocking climax that rivals Planet of the Apes original movie and book. Will Ja become the planet’s slave or savior? "Drawing on the science fiction elements of Octavia Butler's Parable of the Talents, as well as the time-travel approach of Kindred, we get a new vision of the possible in The Opening, which is the function of all creative expression, after all." –Shannon Gibney, Writer & Educator
