Etched is a multi-generational story of an African American family: their loves, losses, hopes, trials, and a dream which compelled them to face every adversary with conviction and determination. In Etched you will meet strong women that, despite their collective and individual struggles, hold on to the dream of one day getting book learning for the women of the family. In 1813, on the Beauford Plantation in Promise Land, Greenwood, South Carolina a Seminole Indian is sold into slavery by her Creek captors. She gives birth, like most of the other slaves on the plantation, to yet another child for the plantation owner Rockwell Beauford. This child is called Etta Mae but as time passes she's simply called Cornbread because of her high-yellow complexion and her brownish red hair. Cornbread is different to other children on the plantation, a seed of determination has been birthed in her by her Seminole mother, Lil' Mae.
