The Scar of Shame (1927), directed by Frank Perugini, tells the story of a young woman who escapes from her abusive father and is rescued by an aspiring composer but encounters opposition from his class-conscious mother. The film, a collaboration between races, was produced by Colored Players Film Corporation out of Philadelphia. It is preserved by the Library of Congress and was restored in 2015. Musical accompaniment by Tedde Gibson on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.

Running time: 86 minutes

CineClub will immediately follow the film in The Paramount lobby bar, hosted by Andrea Stuart-Lehalle, Festival Director for LANGSTON's Seattle Black Film Festival and joined by acclaimed film star and Obie Award-winning solo artist, Roger Guenveur Smith, who was in many Spike Lee films (Do The Right Thing, Malcolm X, A Huey P. Newton Story, Rodney King).
