In New Orleans before the Civil War, stature in society is directly related to one's skin shade--the lighter the better. Although he has been trained as a physician and studied in Paris, accomplished Creole musician and piano teacher Benjamin January is still looked upon as the son of a slave. So when a young octoroon--a woman only one-eighth black--is murdered, January, this free man of color, is the perfect scapegoat. Online feature.
