Dark Girls


This fascinating and controversial film goes underneath the surface to explore the prejudices dark-skinned women face throughout the world.

Women share their personal stories, touching on deeply ingrained beliefs and attitudes of society, while allowing generations to heal as they learn to love themselves for who they are. Pick up this thought-provoking documentary, featured on OWN back in June, on the way home to invoke some serious dialogue.
