Dark Girls: Preview

News of this upcoming documentary about skin color issues in the black community has been viral all over social media and on numerous blogs. In our culture where many times what is considered beautiful still leans towards the lighter end of the spectrum, it’s not often the spotlight is upon those of us who are of a darker hue and even rarer that our stories get told. I come from a dark skin family and my complexion qualifies for an epic failure of the paper bag test. Watching the preview I can relate to all of the stories told by these women, having been through my share of discrimination & rejection based on skin color, hair texture and features. Look forward to seeing the full feature when it debuts on screen in the fall.
