In Angel, the life of a slave owner and his family, as well as their slaves, is explored through the story of a genius slave named Angel. Appointed as overseer of the plantation in her teenage years, Angel’s ideas bring great success to the slave owner and turn him into a multimillionaire. However, when the Civil War sweeps through the plantation, the owner and his family are killed. After the war, Angel uses the owner’s gold to support 116 former slave families until law and order is restored in Mississippi. She builds a school for the slaves and attends to their medical and dental needs, eventually purchasing land for them to become sharecroppers. Follow Angel’s journey as she works to create a thriving utopia at the plantation, called Richmond Crest, and see what the future holds for her and the community she has built.

Jack Cauley was born on September 19, 1931, during the Great Depression. As a boy, Jack lived on Sapelo Island for two years along with 400 African-Americans whose forefathers had moved to the island for one reason: freedom. The stories told by Black people about their forefathers and the despicable U.S. government and slavery left an impression on the boy about democracy. At 17 years of age, Jack went to Mexico, where he worked in commercial fishing for two years. He then spent three years in the U.S. paratroopers. Jack then worked for 37 years for Hercules Inc. and retired as an Area Supervisor.
