Plot Summary

A knife altered the course of Roosevelt Wilkerson's life twice. As a young man, it sent him to prison. Later, homeless and angry, he picks up a stick and begins carving. Stickman is the incredible story of Roosevelt's journey off the street and the transformative - and unlikely - friendships he makes along the way. Art enthusiast Carol Brewer befriends him and their relationship is the genesis of an art program for the Dallas homeless. Susan Nowlin, a Texas socialite, becomes his benefactor and helps him to sell his hand-carved sticks, some of which reach the hands of celebrities and world leaders like Pope Benedict VI. Stickman demonstrates that love and compassion hold no economic nor racial boundary and have the power to transform each one of us.
