Dr. Baker is enthusiastic about his new assistant, a young university-trained physician named Caleb LeDoux ... until he realizes he is black. The Ingalls family are among the few to accept Dr. LeDoux, while others' reactions range from prejudice to outright racism. Even Dr. Baker has a tough time concealing his prejudice. Then, a pregnant white woman is suffering from complications and must rely on LeDoux to save her life, but the woman's racist husband refuses to cooperate and Charles must intervene. The surgery is a success and both woman and her baby son are fine; Dr. Baker is stunned and realizes he must deal with his own prejudice ... by going all out to convince Dr. LeDoux to stay when he threatens to leave the community.

Did You Know?
It really gets under my skin. When I think of how many good men, like my brother, died fighting a war just so the likes of you could go to school...
I'm just sayin' what folks in town are thinkin'.
Dr. Caleb Ledoux
Mr. Sherman, I'm very well aware of how many good men died in that war. 646,392 good men to be exact.
