Charles Gray is an accomplished educator and scholar dedicated to exploring the intersection of education, film, and race. His doctoral dissertation, titled "In Plain Sight: Changing Representations of 'Biracial' People in Film," looks at the intricate dynamics of mixed-race identity in cinema. His research interests encompass the multifaceted realm of mixed-race characters in film, a subject he explores with depth and nuance.
