Tired of his family's grinding poverty and of being treated as a freak by the local white bigots, 11-year-old black youngster Solomon Henry (played by future Diff'rent Strokes co-star Todd Bridges) runs away from home. Showing up at the Ingalls home, Solomon offers to sell himself as their slave in exchange for a decent education. In the course of events, both Solomon and the Ingalls learn many important lessons about tolerance and pride -- and as a bonus for fans of the series, Charles Ingalls (Michael Landon) amusingly plays upon the ingrained prejudices of the insufferable Mrs. Oleson (Katherine MacGregor).
