Grant is a schoolteacher and lives with his elderly aunt, Tante Lou, in the quarter, a poor black community thirteen miles away from Bayonne. Tante Lou is best friends with Miss Emma, Jefferson's godmother. The day after the trial, Miss Emma asks Grant to visit Jefferson in prison, hoping that he can teach her godson to walk with dignity before he dies. In the end, it is kindness from Grant and the townspeople rather than preaching from Reverend Ambrose that finally convinces Jefferson to behave with dignity.
