"Dark Girls" Documentary to Premiere on OWN

"Dark Girls" the documentary co-directed by D. Channism Berry and Bill Duke has finally got a world premiere date on OWN for next Sunday. The film gives dark-skinned women a platform to discuss the struggles they have faced because of their complexion. The film is meant to spread about awareness and create dialogue.

To be honest, I am a bit tired of the perpetual conversation of dark skin vs. light skin but I also recognize that to this date, it is still an issue that plagues our communities, leaving many little girls and grown womyn alike feeling less than and unpretty. So, until that changes a dialogue needs to be had.

Will you be watching?
