Greg Garrett’s Five Essential Films on Race in America

Mixed race relationships:

The second theme discussed in ‘MISSING, Past and Present’

The question of mixed race and issues relating to marriage of people from different religious backgrounds runs seamlessly throughout my recently released novel.  Having worked all of my teaching life in a multicultural society the came naturally to me and so it has been fascinating to see what other bloggers have to say.

Gregg Garratt writes in his vivid account of the portrayal of race in American much loved films:

“Race is hard to talk about and often conversations can become divisive, but film is one of our most important meaning-makers, and American movies have been grappling with race for over a hundred years. Here are five essential films that can help us talk about race by seeing how far we have come as a nation and, perhaps, how far we still have to go.”
