Sarah Mathews has a great sense of black pride and it shows in every aspect of her life; from her Afro-centric bookstore to the way she's raised her daughter Zora. Several years ago, Sarah's husband passed away, but that didn't stop her from teaching Zora what it means to be a strong black woman. When a high school science experiment reveals her blood type, Zora concludes that the man she had thought was her father, in fact, wasn't. She confronts her mother who confesses that after her husband died, she went to a sperm bank and was artificially inseminated.
