A Crack In The Wall: Racism explodes when a black boy enrolls at an all-white high school

by Daniel Fleischhacker

Malcolm Maguire is a senior at all white Clinton High, and he gets an unusual surprise on the first day back after Christmas break. A gay Negro, Lionel Lemmons, shows up in his homeroom, and he is as out of place as a brown beer mug in a collection of china tea cups. Malcolm and his girlfriend, Carrie Crawford, believe in equality for all, and they accept Lionel hoping to set an example that others will follow. It’s not long before Malcolm and Carrie are getting anonymous hate notes. Gay prejudice is spread wide but racial prejudice runs deep. The reality is that the races are separated by an unyielding wall.
Both Malcolm and Lionel are talented painters. Malcolm’s greatest dream is to win the distinguished High School Art Competition, and Lionel has also entered. One afternoon when the Art room is unoccupied, vandals destroy Lionel’s painting and deface Malcolm’s, ruining his chances of winning the Art Competition. Angered because he feels he is being punished for being too friendly with Lionel, he backs away from the friendship. Malcolm’s painting is restored, and in a more rational frame of mind, he realizes that Lionel is not to blame. He again has a chance of winning the Art Competition, and he renews his friendship with Lionel.
Then the Clinton neighborhood goes crazy when a white girl says she was assaulted by a back man. Lionel shows up at school dressed like a Negro field hand in overalls, a straw hat and a rope around his neck, forced to dress like this by vicious racists. And this is only the beginning. They trash Lionel’s’ apartment and kill his dog. Malcolm and Carrie take Lionel and his mother to safety in the black neighborhood. Lionel is bitter and angry, and Malcolm knows they may never see each other again.
Malcolm is shattered when Lionel wins the Art Competition. (He entered a painting he did at home.) A gay Negro beat him out for first prize, and after all he had done for him? It is the mother of all sucker-punches. To further complicate things, Lionel is disqualified on a technicality, and Malcom’s painting is chosen as the winner. Now, Malcolm does some serious soul-searching. Why can’t a gay Negro paint a prize-winning painting? What good is first place if it comes at the expense of somebody else? Who does the prize money really belong to? And the more he thinks of these things, the more he knows what he must do.
