Overview
When Alice Jones, a former nanny, married Leonard Rhinelander in 1924, she became the first black woman to be listed in the social register as a member of one of New York's wealthiest families. Once the news of the marriage became public, a scandal of race, class and sex gripped the nation - and forced the couple into an annulment trial. This work tells the story of the scandal retaining the drama of the time, but also concerns itself with the prickly nature of racial identity.
