When Grandma was a little girl in Mississippi, she sneaked into town one day. When she saw the "Whites Only" sign on the water fountain, she had no idea what she would spark when she took off her shoes and—wearing her clean white socks—stepped up to drink. Bravery, defiance and a touch of magic wins out over hatred in this story about a town that changes.
