Movie Discussion Group: Pinky (1949)

February 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Movie Discussion Group: “Wonder Women!”
Week 3: Pinky (1949)
Thursday, February 18, 6:30 p.m. via ZOOM.
 
“When reviewing Ethel Barrymore movies, Pinky is a film not to be missed. ” (In the Good Old Days of Hollywood website).
 
In this race-based drama, a light-skinned black woman “passes” for white falls in love with a white doctor while in nursing school in the north.  She confronts many harsh realities when she returns home to the south and her mother.
 
Join movie buff Al Fick for our weekly movie discussions on Thursdays in February.  His “Wonder Women” series features classic movies with strong female leads.  All you have to do is enjoy the movie before the discussion night! Pinky is available for free through interlibrary loan, but you can also stream it through TCM (Turner Classic Movies).
