I am tired of us airing dirty laundry for all society to witness.

It's exactly what I hoped it would be! With an open-mind, this documentary will evoke a thought-provoking conversation that's very needed in today's society that's been warranted for decades!

Dark Girls sets out to address and further problematize longstanding issues of colorism, especially among Black women and girls. The documentary recounts real-life experiences "dark girls" have faced since childhood that in most instances have followed them through adulthood. The accumulation of messages - often mean and cruel - have shaped perceptions of beauty, self-esteem, and aspirations to a point of questioning ones worth. Beyond that, Dark Girls is a reminder of stratified society on a macro and micro level. While the documentary centers Black women and girls, the issue of skin-tone is not germane to Black people. However, it pushes viewers to consider how and from where are messages are generated and who controls them. I am reminded of how relevant Drs. Kenneth and Mamie Clark's work is more than a half-century later. Dark Girls is another tool that can help talk through why and where do we go from here? I recommend this film for parents/caregivers to explore independently and with their children.

Enlightening. If you are white, especially if you have women of color as friends or family, you need to watch this.

Teaches so much of what we (black women) already know. However the concepts are explained in ways that many of us can't articulate with such clarity. This documentary isn't just inspiring, it's necessary.
