Show Description:
Purlie Victorious has come back to his shabby cabin to reacquire the local church and ring the freedom bell. An inheritance due to a cousin would supply the needed cash, but unfortunately it is controlled by the plantation colonel. When Purlie sends an imposter to the colonel to claim the inheritance, she is unmasked and the colonel makes a pass at her. Eventually the church is saved, services are held and the freedom bell rings.
