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. Williams) herself was the daughter of a white plantation owner and his mistress.
