Black Like Me
Based on a true story, John Finley Horton (James Whitmore), a white Southern reporter, darkens his skin and begins to live as a black man while writing a series of magazine articles about his experiences. Horton has a number of harrowing encounters, both with whites and blacks, as he travels from town to town in his disguise. His treatment brings him close to hysteria, and he seeks temporary refuge with some white friends before resuming his momentary masquerade.
