Screenplay: African Diplomat

Based on true events of the late 1950s, as the UN admits newly independent African countries, they come across housing issues due to racial discrimination. Eleanor Roosevelt calls upon her acquaintance Miss Maudester Newton, who comes from a prominent Afro-American family, to work with local NY church ladies to find suitable housing for the delegates during the restless times of segregation. As Miss Newton works with the many African diplomats a love interest ensues but can it survive the political and cultural challenges in 1950s American society? This sometimes funny and sometimes heartbreaking story will appeal to a broad audience.
