Black. White.

Black. White.

Documentary series that examines race relations by chronicling the lives of a white family and a black family, possibly living under one roof. Black. White. examines race with an extraordinary approach by putting new faces on an African-American family, the Sparks, and Caucasian family, the Wurgels.

Through the transformative power of make-up by Academy Award nominated make-up effects artist Keith VanderLaan (The Passion of the Christ), the Wurgels become black and the Sparks become white, which challenges their beliefs and core values in ways they could have never imagined. The make-up process for each family member took 3 to 5 hours for every day of transformation.

"It's the last week of the project," says Nick at the beginning of the series finale, "and nobody's getting along." Not only that, but Renee's worried about Nick's attitude, and arranges a meeting with an ex-gang member to scare him straight. Meanwhile, Rose prepares for her poetry slam. She's petrified. And all six participants read letters they have written to each other. "There were not all nice things said," Rose admits, "but it was real." And it leads to the beginning of understanding.
