When Mandy Jones was a little girl, white men blew up her mother with a cluster bomb. Little did they know that Mandy would grow up and start the biggest revolution in US history.
When President Trump is elected in 2016, Mandy makes her move. She joins the anti-Trump protests in downtown Portland, Oregon. Then she jumps in front of a news camera and speaks her mind loudly and clearly. Mandy's words and emotions touch the hearts of millions of Americans. With one short, impassioned interview, the Oya Movement begins.
Named after the African goddess of revolution, Oya demands an end to racial injustice, the tyranny of rich white men, and the Military-Industrial Complex that subjugates so many poor people, of all races, in the US. But as Oya's targeted protests, kidnappings of prominent officials, and corporate boycotts mount, white nationalists in positions of power take notice. They won't give up their money or power without a fight, and they control the military!
Mandy and Oya's response could change society for good, finally. Or it could destroy the very fabric of American life and bring turmoil, deprivation, and unrest to everyone.
In this powerful and controversial novel, Alderin Ordell points an unwavering eye at the worst ills that ail our country. His characters drive to the heart of the societal issues that affect us all. While White Men Sleep is an edgy, contemporary call to action that keeps you guessing and mesmerized at the same time.
