White: A Memoir in Color
Joel Katz, 2012
USA | English | 59 minutes

World Premiere! White: A Memoir in Color director Joel Katz and Letters Home director in person at both screenings!

In this personal documentary, Joel Katz (Strange Fruit, NYJFF 2002) explores what it means to be white in America through the story of his own family across generations. His father’s role as a white professor at Howard University, a traditionally black college, during the civil rights era comes to bear on his and his wife’s decisions about race and adoption. Original score by Don Byron.
