Film Screening, “Uncommon Vision: The Life and Times of John Howard Griffin”
John Howard Griffin (1920-1980) was an American journalist and author, much of whose writing was about racial equality. He is best known for darkening his skin and journeying through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia to experience segregation in the Deep South in 1959. He wrote about this experience in his 1961 book Black Like Me. The Department of English will host a screening of a documentary about Griffin’s life, Uncommon Vision: The Life and Times of John Howard Griffin. Watch the trailer below:
