Dateline: Bronzeville is a fast-paced mystery adventure set on Chicago’s South Side in 1940.
Dateline: Bronzeville features Runny Walker, a veteran photojournalist for The Chicago Advocate. He’s a man about town who knows just about everybody, and where most of the bodies are buried. His news beat is Bronzeville, where mysteries run deep and solving them can cost your life!
Dateline: Bronzeville has roots in the most significant and most under-reported event of the twentieth century, the Great Migration. Millions of African Americans fled the harsh realities of the Jim Crow South in great streams that followed the railways and highways north and west. They were in search of a better life and opportunity. The new home they made, like Bronzeville, altered the course of a nation.
Dateline: Bronzeville is the first in a series of Runny Walker Mysteries. It features scandal, corruption… and murder, while marking a collaboration of two brothers who are native sons of Bronzeville. The illustrated novella melds stunningly beautiful original artwork with a dynamic “ripped from the headlines” mystery tale.
Runny Walker is a new American hero and Dateline: Bronzeville transports the reader to a place and time unique in American history. It brings to life all the hustlers and ne’er-do-wells, strivers and survivors in the great Black Metropolis of America—Bronzeville.
