Louise in Charlestown is a drama about racism and forgiveness in Boston during the turbulent era of forced integration. Twelve-year-old Patty, an Irish-American girl, has a new best friend. Louise is from Jamaica. Patty adores Louise and ignores her family's increasing warnings about their friendship. Inevitably, violence occurs, and Patty must grapple with the outcome decades later.
