Leonetty

Leonetty Jones, a quite reserved 10-year-old Black boy. He is sent by his estranged Mother to live with his elderly Grandmother in a small house located further south. His Grandmother has been subjected to being bedridden for majority of her days due to her deteriorating health. As a result, Leonetty is left responsible for taking care of the day to day household work; taking out the trash, washing dishes, sweeping floors etc. The time he does get to himself is spent playing with the local neighborhood kids, all of whom are African American but are considerably lighter than Leonetty in terms of skin complexion. This leaves Leonetty as an outcast during a critical time in his young life.
