Summary
A story about an ill-matched marriage between a black concert pianist and a poor, lower class young black woman. Secretly ashamed of her, the young man keeps his wife hidden from his socially-prominent middle-class mother. Despite the melodrama, it is a strong statement on the issues of class and the color caste system which existed within the African American community, as well as probing questions of ambition and authority. This was the first film of the colored Players Film Corporation of Philadelphia
