Growing up, Lacey Schwartz felt like an outsider. Raised in upstate New York by Caucasian Jewish parents, she never felt like she fit in. It was obvious, though unspoken that Lacey was different. Enrolling in Georgetown University, Lacey received an invitation to join the Black Student Union. The problem was that Lacey had always thought that she was white. Accepting the invitation, Lacey used the opportunity to discover who she is and ultimately, make peace with the questions she has been wrestling with since childhood.
Ms. Schwartz tells her story in the documentary Little White Lie.
I found this documentary to be compelling. There were questions of race, religion, identity and finding your way in the world. While we all have our paths in life to walk on, these questions are universal.
I highly recommend this documentary.
