The year is 2195, and A LOT has changed. After major political, economic, and social turmoil, the United States is a disaster. The media is completely controlled and censored by the government. The history of the oppressed, and people of color has been dismantled, edited, and in most cases totally erased. All books and physical publications are forbidden and have been destroyed.
All is not completely lost. There is a glimmer of hope!
