THE COURAGE TO LOVE profiles the extraordinary life of Henriette Delille, the first African-American saint. Set in New Orleans in the early 1800s, the film recounts an era when mixed races had open courtship, but were forbidden to marry. Delille (Vanessa L.

A woman of profound religious conviction, Delille later formed a group dedicated to helping the disadvantaged, known as the Sisters of the Holy Family,
