Separate But Equal

Grace and Robert E applied for a grant to open a Freedman's School, but when the books arrive, Teresa refuses to teach there, and so Grace volunteers to teach until an instructor can be found. She soon realizes that Anthony is far ahead of her other students and if he is to continue his education he must attend the town school.

But, Grace's and Robert E's attempts to enroll Anthony are met with violent opposition. Preston loses Grace as an employee, after making his hotel "white only" because of objections to blacks from a white patron who is being lead on by Jake and Hank.
