In this documentary, Lacey Schwartz reflects on her experiences growing up in a typical Jewish household, remaining unaware of her true parentage until her mother shares the long-held secret of her affair with a black man.
 
Filmmaker Lacey Schwartz thinks her dark skin and hair are from a Sicilian ancestor. When she uncovers the lie that haunted her parents' marriage, she begins a journey to reconcile her past as she embraces her African-American heritage. Little White Lie is personal documentary about the legacy of family secrets, denial, and the power of telling the truth.
 
We will have a discussion about this provocative film facilitated by Sherri Goldman.
