Starring three Oscar-winning actors, Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy, and Katharine Hepburn, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? was the first positive representation of interracial marriage in U.S. cinema — and interracial marriage was still illegal in seventeen states when the film was released. Sociologist Erica Chito-Childs will lead a discussion of interracial images in popular culture.
