Watch Trailer For Award-Winning Race Identity Doc "Colour Me"

Here’s the trailer for Colour Me, a documentary examining the way we define race. It screened at this year’s San Francisco Black Film Festival and won the “Bronze Palm Award” at the 2011 Mexico International Film Festival.

Directed by Sherien Barsoum, the film follows motivational speaker Anthony McLean and his groundbreaking mentorship program for black teens in Brampton, the most demographically changing Canadian city. While challenging his students to analyze and abandon the stereotypes they have accepted, Anthony is forced to critically examine his own identity.

The film is still on the festival circuit but for future updates please check out the film Facebook page HERE or go to
