Actress Halle Berry to speak at Princeton conference on race, women and film

June 20, 2000 2:12 p.m.

Actress Halle Berry will give the keynote address in a free, two-day program at Princeton University that examines Hollywood's portrayal of issues of race and gender.

The conference, "Imitating Life: Women, Race, Film, 1932-2000," will be held Sept. 22 and 23 and centers around the two classic film versions of Fannie Hurst's 1932 book, "Imitation of Life." The book and movies tell of two widows -- one black and one white -- who join forces to support their two young daughters.
