3 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scar of shame: In no film was the racial theme more apparent than in this story about an ill-matched marriage between a black concert painist and a poor, lower class 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. This was the first film of the Colored Players Film Corp. of Philadelphia
