The Underwood's of Napa Valley Movie
The story is about an African American family that owns a Napa Valley winery–a story that has rarely, if ever, been reflected on film or television before.
Henrietta and Frank Underwood migrated to Napa, California during the Great Migration in the fifties. They made a modest living growing corn and then switched to growing Cabernet grapes. They became independently wealthy after opening Underwood Hills Winery.
Although Frank has since passed away, Henrietta is now the family matriarch and head of the winery. Her focus in life is to marry off all five of her adult grandchildren to loving spouses. She’s dubbed each one of her grandsons with a character trait.
KENTON UNDERWOOD, the eldest grandson, is “the protective one.” Protective of his family, Kenton stays busy producing award winning wines while running the family winery and competing with vintners from local and international wineries.
JUSTIN UNDERWOOD, is “the strong one.” He’s a passionate civil rights attorney and a modern day knight in shining armor who fights to protect the woman he loves in court.
CARTER UNDERWOOD, is “the gifted one.” He’s a brilliant, self-centered Silicon Valley billionaire who has suffered burnout and returns home to get a new perspective on life. He’s used to controlling his time, money and heart until he meets Courtney Oliver, the former “Miss Oakland” who makes him realize his heart has a mind of its own, and he can’t tell it who to love.
BRANDON UNDERWOOD, is “the artistic one.” He has lost his passion for painting until he meets Ciara Alexander, an ambitious ballerina whose biological clock is ticking. She must choose between her successful career, and the man she loves.

Black (The Black Series Volume 1) by Joan Vassar
In August 1831, Nat Turner leads a group of escaped slaves in a rebellion that rocks the South. The revolt comes to a quick and violent end. In November, Nat is publicly hanged, and as his body swings, a false sense of peace washes over Jerusalem, Virginia.
Unbeknownst to the world, on the day Nat Turner dies, his son, Nat Hope Turner, is born. Reared by Big Mama on the Turner plantation, young Nat's identity is kept secret to keep him safe. As Nat grows to manhood, he leads his own uprising against slavery and is forever after known as Black.
Fate-by way of Big Mama-leads Black to rescue a young female slave, Sunday, before the plantation owner can sell her. Black has lived for liberty until the day he comes face to face with the alluring Sunday. As the two embark on a sexually charged ride toward love and freedom, they set off a chain of events that forces Black to risk his own liberty for hers.
Black shares the appealing tale of a passionate love between a man and a woman bound together to change their destiny.
Clarion Review from Foreword Magazine
5/5 Stars Black by Joan Vassar
Vivid, poignant, and absorbing, this outstanding novel reaches back in time to portray
Nat Turner’s son’s quest for freedom and equality.
Set in nineteenth-century America prior to the Civil War, this well-researched novel
depicts the horror of slavery and the violence of revolt in a heady mix of bloody realism and heroic romance. Joan Vassar portrays Nat Turner’s literate son in his passionate quest for freedom and equality in Black, a moving, revelatory, and disturbing narrative. This is the first book of a promising series.
A skillful blend of fact and fiction, Vassar’s plot is a journey that takes place during a
volatile period in US history. Her believable protagonists emerge from carefully crafted pages with a human quality that transcends ordinary characterization. Without whitewashing or condemning, Vassar depicts Black as he leads a slave uprising, while he and his lover, Sunday, face incredible obstacles to be together as the country teeters on the edge of war. He rescues her from a life in captivity and then teaches her to read, eventually marrying the young woman he has befriended and nurtured.
Laced with heavy dialect—perhaps too much in places—and straightforward description,
this somber book allows a candid look at behind-the-scenes maneuvering and clandestine negotiation in a world where no one knows for certain who can be trusted. Danger lurks on every path along the Underground Railroad, from bounty hunters in the North to plantation overseers in the South, creating a treacherous route to freedom and relative safety.
Potent use of language empowers the story, giving a film like quality to action scenes.
Sexual interludes are explicit, often beautiful, sometimes rough. The focus remains on Black and Sunday, even as cataclysmic events threaten to tear them apart; they live in the now of the mid-1800s. External conflict heightens their passion, awareness of mortality always in the forefront rather than suppressed in the depths of subconsciousness.
Ideal for adult classrooms and book groups, Black educates with an honest yet aching
style. Vassar’s outstanding novel reaches back in time, vivid, poignant, and absorbing. No one will walk away from this literary endeavor without unearthing a piece of history to serve as a reminder of what previous generations endured for the sake of universal emancipation and abiding love. --Written by Julia Ann Charpentier
