God Forbid, 'My Baby Is Black!'

A movie trailer for the film My Baby Is Black! Gasp and swoon -- a black man and white woman getting it on in 1961.  


The trailer for the French film My Baby Is Black (Les Lâches Vivent D'espoir), originally released in 1961, is making its rounds on the web again. This film, which was released in the United States in 1965, examines race relations during the 1960s through the storyline of a white college student who gives birth to a black baby, whose father is a black medical student. The film was sensational during that time for obvious reasons including a love scene between the white and black actors. In case you've missed it on the often controversial Opie and Anthony Show, here it is.
