Episode Summary

EDIT
An 11-year-old black child named Solomon Henry feels oppressed by his heritage's lack of opportunity in life. He runs away from his mother and older brother to pursue his dream of attending school somewhere. He comes across Charles Ingalls in Mankato, secretly hitches a ride in the back of his wagon, and eventually becomes a guest in the Ingalls home. As he helps out around the farm and goes to school in Walnut Grove, Solomon's optimistic attitude is a true inspiration to the whole family, but he struggles to open up about his real life.moreless
