The Souls of Black Girls is a provocative news documentary that takes a critical look at media images-how they are instituted, established and controlled. The documentary also examines the relationship between the historical and existing media images of women of color and raises the question of whether they may be suffering from a self-image disorder as a result of trying to attain the standards of beauty that are celebrated in media images.

The journey takes you from self esteem issues due to skin color, features and hair texture....all isms that come out of American whites defining Black Beauty. We watch young girls talk about self hate because of some stereotypes.....but this documentary puts the issues on the table and through conversation with famous Black women who had to deal with isms...these young girls come to realize that they are unique and Black Beauty must only be defined by Black people. This documentary is a wake-up call for all young girls who read fashion mags and watch TV. It helps you understand why weave wearing, light complexion, made up images are not necessarily beautiful. Kinky hair, dark skin, bold features...are all beautiful....love the you that you are.....
Contributions from well known actors like Regina King, Jada Pinkett-Smith, musician/activist Chuck D and others were compelling.
It would be great if the same treatment could be given to a documentary on the media portrayal of black men which I believe does require comment.
