Scooter's actions put him face to face with two well dressed gentlemen, Martin and Malcolm whom Lucky (Lawrence, BET's The Clean Up Woman) mistakes at first as law enforcement. The two mysterious men befriend the angered young black man, taking him on a historical, educational journey. Scooter soon learns that change without change doesn’t really change anything. JD Lawrence’s Martin, Malcolm and Me is a story about love, forgiveness, self-awareness and keeping your eye on the prize.
