Bridgerton and Downton Abbey fans will enjoy this historical romance with an all-Black cast!

The Davenports is told from four different perspectives of young black women navigating societal and family expectations in 1910s Chicago. While the plot focuses more on the romances of the young women the Davenports family is loosely based on the Patterson family that owned C.R. Patterson and Sons, the first African American founded car company.
