The Recidivist follows America’s first African-American female jewel thief who broke the law; racial barriers and her mother’s heart.

Born to a seamstress and coal-miner in 1931, Doris, a light-skinned African-American, escapes her small life in West Virginia to start a modeling career in New York City. Her magnetic charm and good-looks, quickly land her a job working for top-designer, Anne Lowe. But when an accident ruins Ms. Lowe’s wedding collection for The White House, their relationship turns sour and Doris’ career is cut short. Alone and destitute, Doris needs to act fast.
Unbeknownst to her, a new career awaits…only this one is beyond her wildest dreams.
