May 21st – Imitation of Life
In Douglas Sirk‘s emotionally and visually extravagant final film, Lana Turner is Lora Meredith, an aspiring actress and single mother who meets Annie Johnson, a black and similarly single and struggling mother. The two women move in together and face a huge challenge as they try to raise their children — especially Annie’s daughter, who, favoring her extremely fair-skinned father, slowly comes to resent her mother’s black identity.
Toward a More Perfect Union is sponsored The Sacred Conversation on Race and Diversity Planning Committee, an interfaith project of Seekers Church and Covenant Christian Community.
