Things We Saw Today: Across the Tracks Trailer Presents a Story of Sisterhood and Colorism In the 1960s South

Director Mike Cooke’s short film, Across the Tracks, tells the story of two young, black sisters in 1960s Georgia, one of whom can pass for white and chooses to when their school district becomes integrated. It’s a complex story about identity and colorism in a racially charged time, which in many ways doesn’t feel too far removed from the present day. You can check out the trailer above, and the full film HERE. (via Shadow and Act)
