Good Black Don’t Crack

Dalejean is a middle-aged single mother of three teen-age children, each of whom is going through a period of adolescent crisis. But Dalejean doesn’t have a lot of time to worry about them. She is usually running late to her job as a waitress in Jake’s soul food diner. Jake drinks too much, keeps a gun under the counter and is constantly trying to seduce Dalejean. But Dalejean is having a secret affair with Rip, a ”live and let live” kind of guy who is at least 10 years her junior and who wants to marry her.
