Oscar buzz for Passing, through which a black girl pretends to be white

LOS ANGELES – One of many movies getting Oscar buzz is Passing, the story of a light-skinned black girl who’s “passing”, or pretending to be white, in Twenties New York.

Starring Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson, it was written and directed by English actress Rebecca Corridor, whose late maternal grandfather, Norman Isaac Ewing, routinely hid his African-American heritage and “handed” as white, as did Corridor’s mom.
