Re: True Colors. We have a legal copy and we need a
replacement. Does anyone know if this title is still available.
I called ABC some time ago and it was not. Any new news?

I too recommend "20-20s" old piece "True Colors" as an incisive
demonstration of everyday racism (despite our having 60 other titles on
racism in our "African American Perspectives" catalog here at California
Newsreel). Its tracking of the different responses to matched pairs -
one black, one white - in encounters with prospective landlords,
employers, car saleman, and clerks is eye-opening to white people still
in denial about racism.
