Local middle school teacher Jeff Stoodt hosts the second film in our series called "Segregated Worlds" which supports the effort of the Milton Reads committee and the town-wide reading of "To Kill A Mockingbird."  The 1934 movie starring Claudette Colbert called "Imitation of Life" is an early film on race and this was Colbert's breakout role.  It is a moving story about the love between mothers and daughters, race and class.  Fredi Washington plays a young woman, the daughter of a maid, who is humiliated to be identified as black.  Don't miss this delicious slice of film history!  Please also join us for Jeff's trivia starting at 6:15.  The film is screened at 6:30 sharp.  Free and open to the public, with complimentary popcorn, held in the Keys Community Room (lower level). This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and for more information, contact Jean Hlady, Adult Services Librarian, at (617) 698-5757.
