The Scar Of Shame is a historically significant classic early example of the "Race" movie. It was produced by The Colored Film Players Corporation of Philadelphia for the high-minded purpose of communicating the significance of education. The story demonstrates how prejudice and brutality within the black community, destroy a nice girl, and force her down a path of degradation. All of the outdoor footage was shot on location in and around Philadelphia in this well-acted, first-class production.
