New Book Tells the Story of a Fictional Town Where African Americans Live With Zero Tolerance of Crime

Living on the Edge of Freedomtown


Nationwide — Living on the Edge in Freedomtown, released this month, by author Jacqueline T. Small is a story set in Freedomtown, a fictional town created that brags of a utopia where African Americans live.

Freedomtown is a quiet little town located west of Philadelphia. It was founded by a fugitive slave named Samuel Freeman, who also wrote the town charter back in 1862. Sheriff Michael Freeman, who is a descendant of the Freeman clan, is charged with keeping Freedomtown safe. He is the youngest sheriff that has ever been appointed, and he has a lot to prove.

The Freedomtown charter prohibits potential residents with a criminal background from residing in the town, but sometimes people slip through the cracks and cause the townspeople to be… living on the edge in Freedomtown.

One character, Stone ‘Money’ Jones, is living a double life in Freedomtown. He is the product of a dysfunctional family, which steers him in the wrong directions. It is up to Sheriff Freeman to solve the mystery and restore safety and security to this quiet little town.
