Tante Lou wants Grant to take his teaching a step further and work with the black children to get them into books and out of the liquor store. He responds that he was taught what to teach, but that he wasn't taught "how to keep a black boy out of a liquor store." He was questioning and talking back; unacceptable. (Page 13)
