Love on Trial

An American Scandal in Black and White

Heidi Ardizzone (Author, University of Notre Dame), Earl Lewis (Author, University of Michigan)

Overview | Inside the Book
 

"Too important to be ignored....A fascinating look at America's obsession with race, pride, and privilege."—Essence

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 news of the marriage became public, a scandal of race, class, and sex gripped the nation—and forced the couple into an annulment trial. "A compelling read."—Boston Globe "This is a great story....Earl Lewis and Heidi Ardizzone tell it very well."—Chicago Tribune
