This challenging and controversial film tackles the final days of the life of Christ. But unlike its predecessors, COLOR OF THE CROSS debunks the commonly held belief that Jesus was white. Not only does a black man portray Christ, but this important drama also questions whether he was killed for the color of his skin. Jean-Claude La Marre (MALCOLM X) directs, writes, and stars in this powerful film that gives a picture of the religious icon that has never been seen on screen. Debbi Morgan (WOMAN, THOU ART LOOSED) costars beside La Marre.
