Everyday Black Man (2010)

Rated R

Everyday Black Man is primarily about the present life of Moses Stanton, a reserved and conscientious proprietor of a neighborhood grocery.  Having a secretive and troubled past from which he has turned his life, he wants to be an asset to his Oakland community. 

His kindness extends to those often overlooked by society, including Sonny (Corey Jackson), his business partner who is mentally challenged; Ms. Mary (Marjorie Shears), an elderly friend; and Claire (Tessa Thompson), a shy and naïve teacher’s assistant.
