North Carolina: You Are Not Your Father
When Levi Boyd learns who his father is, he is flooded with many emotions. He is shocked because he is learning this from his friends rather than his mother. He is angry because his mother never told him the whole truth. And he is ashamed because it turns out that his father — a man he never met — was the notorious pirate Blackbeard.
