This emphasis on justice is echoed in the work of Michael Eric Dyson. "Charity is no substitute for justice. If we never challenge a social order that allows some to accumulate wealth—even if they decide to help the less fortunate--while others are short-changed, then even acts of kindness end up supporting unjust arrangements. We must never ignore the injustices that make charity necessary, or the inequalities that make it possible."

A.D. premieres this Sunday at 8pm (Central) on NBC and will continue for 12 weeks. We got to watch the first episode in advance and it does not take prophetic insight to foretell that this show will do well. High production value is a great place to start, but as we've seen in the theaters lately with Russell Crowe as Noah and Christian Bale as Moses, it is no guarantee of a satisfied audience. Thankfully, Downey and Burnett's retelling fills in the necessary gaps to turn the pages of history into a TV show with tasteful and historically considerate drama rather than rock-monster-fallen-angels.

While most clearly fit into one group, there are some that are capable in a number of areas. These uniquely gifted individuals are called divergents and they are often feared and shunned by the other classes because they don't fit into the system. The film's protagonist, Tris Prior, is one such person. The series centers on her struggles in understanding her place in society.
