'The House That Will Not Stand’: Film In Development On Free Black Women



Playwright Marcus Gardley's award-winning historical play The House That Will Not Stand is on its way to becoming a film. 
The plot is about free black women living in 1800s New Orleans. 
The main characters are free Black Creole women who fought against racism and became millionaires through plaçage, or the practice of common-law marriages between White men and Black women, biracial women of color, or Native American women.
