Step back in time with this classic and moving black history DVD.

Starring Lana Turner and Juanita Moore (both of whom received Oscar nods for their roles), the film tells the tale of widowed Lora Meredith (Turner) as she strives for a career on Broadway. White Lora takes in Annie Johnson (Moore), a black woman who offers to take care of the household while Lora pursues acting. The dramatic sitiuation in this black history DVD arises when Annie’s half-white daughter, Sarah Jane (Susan Kohner), begins passing herself off as white. Sarah Jane soon learns, though, that she cannot hide her African-American heritage.

This historic film confronts ideas of identity and asks tough questions about whether we can or should choose to self-identify as something we are not, just to be comfortable. Add this black history DVD to your collection and immerse yourself in this stylish cautionary tale.

  • Nominated for two Academy Awards and two Golden Globes
  • 125 minutes
  • Classic of American cinema
