Cosby kid Jasmine Guy lead the line up of celebrities attending the red carpet premiere of the short film Mulatto Saga, which begins its two-month rotation on network affiliates and cable stations on Tuesday, August 7 on the CW-Network (WWHO-TV) in Columbus, Ohio at 12 noon.
Following the screening of Mulatto Saga and its sequel Juliette Fairley's Mulatto's Dilemma at the Mayme Clayton Museum last week, Actress Jasmine Guy moderated a Q and A about the film, interracial relationships and the sometimes hairy task of being bi-racial.
"The film Mulatto Saga is different and fresh. I grew up hating the word 'mulatto' but I've learned to embrace it," said Guy, whose mother is white and father African American. Guy is best known for her role as Southern belle Whitley Gilbert in the Cosby tv show spinoff A Different World that she starred in along with Cree Summer who played Winifred.
For weekly station information and air dates for the film visit the syndicator's website, which is updated every Thursday. Directed by Spike Lee's assistant director Michael Pinckney and based on the stage play directed by filmmaker Charles Burnett, Mulatto Saga stars Juliette Fairley, Cassidy Knight, Kaylee Souther and Yacine Simpore.
Fairley is currently casting her third short film called Juliette Fairley's Diary of a Mulatto Bride and is raising funds for production on indiegogo.com by selling a DVD of Mulatto Saga and its sequel Juliette Fairley's Mulatto's Dilemma at www.mulattosaga.org starting this month.
"I am creating content that reflects the interracial family I was raised in because I believe there are plenty other bi-racial people out there who want to see their mixed race stories on tv and film as much as I do," said Fairley, whose mother is white and father African American.
