Dark Girls- A Documentary by Bill Duke

Actor, producer, writer and director Bill Duke spoke with The RootDC about his new documentary “Dark Girls,” produced along with filmmaker D. Channsin Berry. The film explores the issues that dark-skinned women face. A 10-minute trailer provides haunting insight into the struggles of dark-skinned women.

Women of all ages painfully recount the damage done to their self-esteem and their constant feeling of being devalued and disregarded. One young black man in the trailer said he couldn’t date a woman with dark skin because “they look funny beside me.” (SEE INTERVIEW WITH BILL DUKE)
