Based on a true story, The Middle Passage features two women -- one white, the other a teenage African American -- as they simultaneously face crossing a city park late at night. They are met by four young African American men who offer to accompany them through the park's wide, dark spaces. For the white woman especially, imagination takes hold in this suspenseful tale, to explore individual perceptions and stereotypes in an everyday occurrence. The essence of The Middle Passage lies in the confrontation of one's own fears -- we never know the true scope of our prejudices until we are forced to confront them.
