Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

Yes, there is a theme this week. Same topic, racism, but through a very different, if you will, lens. This 1968 film was highly controversial for many reasons, ranging from the question of interracial marriage, to “concerns” if you will that Sidney Poitier was “too white” to play the role. I also highly recommend that you do some reading about how and why the film was made, especially as regards the (real) relationship between Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.
