Dark Girls: Preview from Bradinn French on Vimeo.

Colorism is definitely something that is still plaguing the black community. Acclaimed actor/director Bill Duke tackles this controversial topic in his new dcoumentary "Dark Skin". Maybe if we are honest with ourselves we can start to have an honest dialogue about how the remnants of slavery, colonialism, and white supremacy still affects our community especially when it comes to how we view our women.
