Summary
Meet Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean. Earl's Diner is their home away from home, the first black-owned business in Plainview, Indiana. Dubbed "the Supremes" by their friends, the inseparable trio is watched over by Earl during their high school days in the racially charged 1960s, and every Sunday after church for the next forty years. Through marriage, children, infidelity, and illness, they weather life's storms together, sharing the juiciest gossip, the biggest tears, and the most uproarious banter at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat
