Last night was the world premiere of Bill Duke's documentary, Dark Girls.  The documentary made its debut on Oprah Winfrey's OWN.

To say the documentary was thought provoking is definitely an unstatement.  Judging by my own Twitter and Facebook feed, I can say there was a lot people had to say about the film.

The documentary focuses on Colorism in the African American community with the emphasis being on the affect it has had on women of darker complexions.

I would love to hear your thoughts about the film and Colorism in general.  Do you think we've made any inroads on the topic or do we still have a very long way to go?

The Beauty of Black Skin
 
One African-American woman says that when she traveled to Cancun, Mexico, with three female friends—two of whom she describes as fair-skinned—local men showered her with attention and complimented her beautiful skin. Find out why she believes her own people don't see any beauty in her at all. Plus, Nalo Hampton, another African-American woman, describes how men treat her differently behind closed doors.
 
The DVD for Dark Girls will be available September 24, 2013.
