As part of the our commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King's final sermon at Washington National Cathedral, join us for a free screening and discussion of «Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.»

Starring Sidney Poitier, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, «Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner» was controversial when it was released 50 years ago, one of the early portrayals of bi-racial relationships as America was struggling with issues of racial justice.

The film garnered 10 Academy Award nominations, along with an Oscar, and remains controversial today — though for different reasons than the reactions the film evoked in1968.

Join us for a screening of the movie, along with a panel examining the historical context and impact of the film.

Panelists:
— Vann Newkirk (The Atlantic)
— Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas (Episcopal Divinity School/Washington National Cathedral)
— Dr. Greg Garrett (Author, Preacher)

This film is presented as part of our Long, Long Way Conference on Race and Film. Learn details about the 3 day conference here: cathedral.org/longlongway/
