#6: The Color of Friendship
It's time for another DCOM and this week we're taking a look at The Color of Friendship. Set in the 1970s it tells the story of a friendship that forms between a white South African student and her black host family's daughter. It's a stark look at Apartheid South Africa, and racism, and it's definitely a film worth discussing.
