Black Like Me (Widescreen)

About this item

The true story of a white man's journey through the deep south... In 1964, just as Washington was passing the Civil Rights Act, some of Hollywood's most passionate activists interpreted John Howard Griffin's brave chronicle "Black Like Me" for the screen, with James Whitmore starring as the writer, who, in 1959, medically altered his pigment and, with the help of a sunlamp, reinvented himself as an itinerant black writer navigating his way through the Jim Crow south. Whitmore's Griffin experiences firsthand both crushing racism and the incredible life force of the African-American community. The stellar cast includes Roscoe Lee Browne, Clifton James, Will Geer and media gadfly Heywood Hale Broun in a rare turn in front of the cameras. The film was fully restored from the negative for this release and includes a bonus disc containing "Uncommon Vision", the biographical documentary of Griffin's truly remarkable life and times.

"Uncommon Vision: The Life And Times Of John Howard Griffin" (60 minutes), An Excerpt From "Reluctant Activist: The Authorized Biography Of John Howard Griffin" By Robert Bonazzi, Original Trailers.

Presented in Black & White, Subtitles: English (Closed Captioned).
