Sometimes things that happen to us as children come back and shape our lives as adults.  This is what happened to Oscar.  As a child, he was expelled from school for hanging up a picture of Abraham Lincoln.  You see, there were many people in the town who hated Lincoln and hated the idea of equal rights.  But Oscar didn't.  And as an adult, he had a hand in creating a major event in the civil rights movement.
