Event Details

The Mixed Monday film series launches with a 1959 Lana Turner classic - Imitation of Life - which explores the story of an African-American woman and her light-skinned, mixed-race daughter who passes for white. Come munch on popcorn, watch the film and discuss the history and cultural context around mixed families, race relations and popular culture. Mixed Mondays series will be hosted by Erica Chito-Childs, sociology professor at CUNY and author of Navigating Interracial Borders and Fade to Black and White.

This event is co-sponsored by Fluent City, who is offering a $150 gift certificate to attendees who sign up at the screening! Also co-sponsored by MixedRaceStudies.org
