Eventually after some months Alex agrees to meet the grandma. We are introduced to a charming elderly lady in her 80s who loves her granddaughter, but dislikes the boyfriend. Stella overhears them talking negatively about blacks and decides they need a history lesson, more so for her granddaughter than the boyfriend. We find that Stella was named for her great grandmother who was a former slave. We hear the trials and tribulations that she endured during her life on the plantation, the heritage of her family and how it came to be they eventually became known as a Caucasian family.
Cynthia's world is turned upside down with the knowledge that she is black and Alex abandons her as a result. The lesson in this is we are all tied together in some way and God did not intend for humans to be separated simply based on skin tone.
After the story is over, the author provides a history lesson for us about the existence of slavery in the North and the misinformation we are prone to believe. She also explains how slaves chose to change their names after being set free with some great examples to back it up.
