  • Two years later, the Washington Family lives in a comfortable new home. James has enrolled in Virginia Normal and Collegiate Institute, where he studies to become a politician. One February, he comes home to share some exciting news with his father.
  • You'll never cast a ballot as long as I live, &%$#@!
  • James?! Dear, I can't believe you're really back!
  • James!
  • I'd love to, son,but the recent Ku Klux Klan attacks on blacks make me a bit nervous. It's best we stay put.
  • Now that the 15th Amendment's just been passed, we can vote! All men, regardless of race or color, can! Will you come with me to the ballot tomorrow pa?
  • Well I'm going regardless!
  • On his way to the ballot later that day...
  • OW!
  • After the attack, James is lucky to escape with his life.
  • Oh, will we ever be truly free from oppression in the United States?
