The Courage to Love
In pre-Civil War New Orleans high society, Vanessa Williams portrays the beautiful African American daughter of a wealthy white plantation owner and his kept mistress. Fighting her family's wishes, society’s rules and rampant racism, she rejects the traditions of an arranged marriage and sets out on a journey fraught with danger and forbidden desires.
