Mini-Series (1hr Ep.)
Harlem, NY. c.1920
She is tall, slender, always impeccably dressed, with never so much as a hair out of place.
She moves, straight-backed, through a world in which black women like her are supposed to be maids, not queens.
Born in the French Caribbean islands, she taught herself English to get ahead.
Raised by an illiterate single mother, she taught herself arithmetic to get even further.
In a world ruled by men, she held her own, defeating all competitors to become the eventual head of the illegal numbers racket. Beating back rival outfits, evading the police, Stephanie St Claire will stop at nothing to secure her edge.
