In this special 90-minute episode, Charles Ingalls (Michael Landon) replaces the injured Jonathan Garvey (Merlin Olsen) in a high-stakes boxing match. Charles wins with astonishing ease -- only to discover that his opponent, a black man named Joe Kagan (Moses Gunn), is in no condition to be in the ring. Doc Baker (Kevin Hagen) tells Kagan that he must give up boxing or face an early death -- but what else can Joe do, and where can he go without facing racial prejudice?
