NEIGHBORS IN BLACK AND WHITE documents the integration and solidarity in 1960’s DC’s Takoma neighborhood through the eyes of two friends, Shannon (white) and Hollis (black), who met 50 years ago, and whose friendship has lasted through the years. The two friends uncover more about their friendship and how those quiet uncomfortable moments even between friends must be addressed. Unless it is spoken – nothing is black and white.
