GRACE'S ONE & ONLY CASSERONI

In the summer of 1964, Frank Groce got a new stepmother. A white woman from Kentucky, Grace made a special spinach casserole so Frank could be tough like Popeye in case classmates picked on him for having an interracial family. That same summer, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, outlawing discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin. Fifty years later, Frank is putting his life back together. He recreates Grace’s recipe and reflects on the experience.
