The Sky Is Gray
Ernest J. Gaines' short story The Sky is Gray was adapted for television by Charles Fuller. James Bond III plays the son of black sharecropper Olivia Cole in this haunting period piece. Young Bond takes a trip to the city with his mother, where he experiences at close quarters the hatred and prejudice that his mother has tried to shield him from. Both mother and son manage to emerge from the experience with strengthened pride. The 46-minute The Sky is Gray was first telecast April 7, 1980 on PBS' American Short Stories anthology. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
