Quality by Cid Ricketts Sumner

bookshelves: winter-20142015, film-only

Read from January 21 to February 22, 2015

Description: Two fine young people loved each other. A doctor, red-headed, brilliant, handsome. A nurse, fair-skinned, soft-eyed, beautiful. And Wednesday was a good day for a wedding. Today was Wednesday.

But today these two young lovers are a thousand miles apart. There will be no wedding. Because, you see, somebody has stuck a label on the girl – the label, “Negro”.

“Quality” is the stirring story of a Negro girl, who once passed for white, who chose honor above passion, and found glory in her struggle for a greater life, a greater love.

[Filmed as “Pinky” in 1949 by 20th Century Fox]
