As an excuse for failing yet another history report, Will says he is disinterested in what they teach at shcool. He says they don't teach any black history and decides to do something about it.
He finds everything needed to start a black history course except a teacher. Fortunately, Vivian is at the metting and volunteers to teach.
Will and Carlton, who assumed easy rides through the class are shocked to find her working them harder than everyone else. They're also hesitant to react when put on the spot to be the last two to sign the petition to make Vivian a permanent teacher.
