On Independence Day, 1966, the partners open Muskhogean Countys 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, arrives--and proclaims that her body will be for colored only.
