In Colorblind, a group of former grade-school classmates reunite and discover the profound impact their beloved African-American teacher, Mr. Bell, had on each of their lives. Escalating violence in Detroit eventually scattered Mr. Bell's class, sending many families into the suburbs and separating the third-grade class for 35 years. Colorblind captures the emotional reunion of the classmates — now in their mid-40s — as they reflect upon the turbulent Civil Rights era and the humble man whose timeless lessons of love and nonviolence touched their hearts and minds and shaped their young spirits.
