In episode 6 we learned that the Board of Education is trying to shut down schools for Black students. Peggy and her family join the campaign to fight the board and keep the schools open. In episode 7, Marion joins the ranks and gives a talk about the importance of keeping the schools open. In this episode, the meeting scenes were shot at The Troy Public Library. You can see rows of books, wooden millwork, and stunning stained glass windows. Designed by New York City architecture firm Barney and Chapman, it was completed in 1897 and now holds a spot on the National Register of Historic Places
