This story tells of a venture between John Morgan, Jr. the dissolute heir to Appalachee's leading white family, and Baby Sweet Jackson, owner of the once-vibrant Red's Cafe in Dark Town. On Independence Day, 1966, the partners open Muskhogean County's first bordello, with two dark-skinned black women, Lana Lips and Fig, ready for the expected white clientele. Then a mysterious woman announcing herself as the 'third whore, ' she proclaims that her body will be 'for colored only.'
