lacey-schwartz-imageLittle White Lies

Wednesday, February 11


Lacey Schwartz, a 37-year-old Harvard Law School graduate turned filmmaker, moves with ease in circles in which her identity as both black and Jewish seems unremarkable. What makes her biography striking is that Ms. Schwartz, a woman with light brown skin and a cascade of dark curls, grew up believing she was white. Film will be followed by a discussion with Lacey Schwartz the subject of the film.
