May 3: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?
Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? is a 1967 classic that was selected last year for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” It follows the life of an interracial couple during a time where interracial marriage was not yet legalized in all of the United States. The film focuses on the familial and societal aspects of interracial marriage but is able to stay lighthearted in the category of comedy-drama.
