In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Little White Lie, filmmaker Lacey Schwartz talks about how applying to college at Georgetown University made her more ready to try on a new identity for herself. She was welcomed by the black community when she joined the Black Student Alliance, and it also lead her to finally confront her mother about why she looks the way she does.
Little White Lie premieres on PBS’s Independent Lens on Monday, March 23, 2015. Check local listings: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/broadcast.html
