Ron Walters has a dream of living in a place where he is treated fairly and equally. But in 1950s Wichita, he can’t even eat at alunch counter because of the color of his skin. With the help of the NAACP Youth Council, Ron organizes a sit-in at the local Dockum Drugstore to try and make a change in his city. However, this makes many people angry, and it seemslike no change will ever happen. Will Ron and his friends ever be able to achieve the equality they seek?
