Need to leave only one subdirectory of a protected directory unprotected

I use .htaccess to protect a directory and all of its subdirectories.  But there is one subdirectory that I don't want to be protected.  I already have .htaccess and .htpasswd files set up for the parent directory, but I was unable to find anything regarding granting public access to a single subdirectory. I'm running Apache 2.0.50.
Thanks

If that doesn't work, you might need to put the following in (although it might be slower):

AuthUserFile /dev/null
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName members
AuthType Basic

order deny,allow
deny from none
allow from all
satisfy any
