Produced, written and directed by pioneering African-American auteur Oscar Micheaux, this low-budget silent race melodrama starred J. Homer Tutt as an idealistic Negro college graduate who discovers bigotry and brutality from both races in a small southern town. Micheaux regulars Evelyn Preer and Lawrence Chenault co-starred in this unusually long presentation (running ten reels).
