The seeds of Jacques unique theory of justice are sown. Jacques explains how the trauma of slavery and Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome (PTSS) affect Black people today. Ayo goes to Jacques’ apartment to examine his collection of African drums. He explains their history and culture in deep and mysterious ways, and sometimes dark. Drumming conjures up the spirits and not all of them are nice. Ayo begins to see the darker side of Jacques laid out with books, photos and artifacts in his large library. That evening they make love for the first time inspired by Coltrane’s A Love Supreme, a mesmerizing soft-Be-Bop praise hymn searching for musical purity and a higher power, much like Jacques is searching in his obsession with Africa.
