Black Like Me 


“One man’s journey- He happened to be a white man. But it could be any man’s journey- if his skin were Black...” splashes across the screen before the film’s first scene. In this movie, where a white journalist ‘medically transforms’ his skin color to be “Black” in order to better understand the experiences of Black Americans in the segregated South, Blackness is a spectator’s sport lived in abstract. With Roscoe Lee Browne and John Marriot. Based on the 1961 autobiography by John Howard Griffin.
