"Black Brass" brilliantly captures the intrigue of city politics, as seen through the eyes of Eddie Cantrell and his young administration. Elected in 1978 as the first African American mayor, Eddie Cantrell must survive all of the hope and desires of the black community that elected him and the suspicions of the white community that wants to control him. Born from a strong, but improverished background, Eddie knows that the world is watching and waiting for him to fail. But he is determined to use his office to open the city to all those who have been left out. And many business and political leaders are not happy about it and work hard to undermine his efforts. Through all of the pressures, problems and temptations laid at their feet, Eddie Cantrell and his administration must see if they will fulfill the Civil Rights prophesies or succumb to the pull of power and greed.
