162. DARK SAGE
October 26, 1981
Doc Baker’s ad for a second town doctor is answered…by a black doctor, Doctor LeDoux. Unable to accept that a black man could be doctor, Doc Baker gives Doctor LeDoux only the simplest cases. Doc Baker realizes he is wrong when Doctor LeDoux saves a pregnant mother and her newborn, a procedure that he would not have been able to do. Doc Baker makes a public apology for his ignorance and asks Doctor LeDoux to stay.
