I just got home from doing hair and my brother Rahim brought this trailer to my attention. It’s a preview of a documentary by Bill Dukes that is coming out in the fall of this year (2011). The film as of now is titled Dark Girls. It’s a powerful film about the stigma of being a “dark skinned” woman and what they have to deal with from not only society as a whole but especially from other black people who they considered family.
Word really fail me on this one. I was brought to tears by some of what i heard. Fall can’t get here fast enough because i can’t wait to see the full length version of this film. You can view the video below. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Peace
