Gentleman’s Agreement and Passing are critically-acclaimed novels on racial and ethnic passing that have also been adapted for the screen. These works explore how anti-Black racism and antisemitism have shaped the integration of Blacks and Jews into White Christian American society. A panel will explore both novels as well as their adaptations for the screen. Excerpts from both films will be shown during the program, which will be held at the Douglass Student Center.
