Overview
Race The Colour of Shame, is a complex supernatural thriller describing the devastating effect that a Negro wayward gene has on a rich and powerful southern Caucasian American family: the Hoxworths.
In this case, a mulatto boy, the offspring of a Hoxworth male and a young female slave whom he raped, is born two centuries prior and is the last surviving male heir.
The prologue takes us back 60 years to the magnificent "Hoxworth Castle" near the city of New Orleans to witness the birth of a baby girl in the family's palatial birthing room.
As the baby's skin rapidly starts to darken from pink to slightly tan, the Hoxworths must once again deny their mixed ancestry. And as so many times before, they must have their trusted family doctor, upon the order of the family matriarch, suffocate the child to keep their dark secret...
