Picture from Pinky

Synopsis

Born with skin light enough to pass for white, Pinky Johnson (Jeanne Crain) has denied her black heritage while attending a northern nursing school. Returning to the south, she is faced with living a lie and disappointing her Grandmother (Ethel Waters), or accepting the truth and giving up the man she loves. Oddly, it's a harder decision than it at first appears.
