"Red Glare is set in Georgia in 1939. Three protagonists: Clementine Barnes, a Black, female physician recently graduated from medical school; Calvin Taylor, a white, baseball player who has moved from Pennsylvania for his first professional job in the minor leagues; and Jackson Bennet, a white sports reporter for the local newspaper. Due to racial discrimination, Clementine is forced to practice medicine in the back of the cafe run by her mother, who is also a traditional healer. Clementine's goal is to be able to break the barriers and practice medicine in a safe, hospital setting while also establishing independence from her mother. Calvin wishes to become a starting pitcher worthy of a major league promotion. He faces challenges from a rival pitcher. Jackson longs for a job reporting for a major newspaper, possibly as a field correspondent in the coming war in Europe. The protagonists' paths will cross." -- Abstract
