Set against the backdrop of the simmering racial tension produced by the LA Riots and the O.J. Simpson trial, comes this powerful hardboiled noir of violence and obsession

Pittsburgh, 1995.

When Bobby's best friend Aaron returns from prison a newly radicalized white supremacist, Bobby feels even more conflicted about hiding his own identity as a biracial Black man.

During the night of their reunion, Bobby witnesses Aaron mercilessly assault a young Black man with a brick.

In the wake of this horrifying act of violence, Bobby must conceal his unwitting involvement in the crime from the police, as well as battle his own personal demons.

Three-Fifths is a harrowing story about racism and brutality that is more urgent now than ever.
