She quickly learns that, even when equality becomes the law, culture prevails--a culture she knows little about. Her challenges go beyond the classroom. Her teacher's salary isn't enough to pay the rent; she moonlights in a hospital lab. Over time, Kenda learns the ways of the segregated South through friendships she creates in unlikely places. Kenda's persistence sees her through challenges and even a lawsuit, and her new friends offer unexpected wisdom and understanding. She makes a difference in her students' lives, and they change her.
