BLURRING THE COLOR LINE

BLURRING THE COLOR LINE follows director Crystal Kwok as she unpacks the history behind her grandmother’s family, who were neighborhood grocery store owners in the Black community of Augusta, Georgia during the Jim Crow era. The film weaves personal family stories with memories from the larger Chinese and Black communities, opening up uncomfortable but necessary conversations around anti-Black racism and the deeply rooted structure of white power and Chinese patriarchy that contributed to this sentiment.

The stories they discuss and choose to remember offer a nuanced look into how two seemingly different communities shared a connective history that illuminates the roots of America’s problematic racial history. This film opens critical conversations on where the Chinese community fit into the black and white dichotomy of the segregated south; how anti-blackness was established and perpetuated; and how marginal groups were pitted against each other in the hierarchical structure of white supremacy.
