Last Friday’s Fashion Flashback, School Daze, dealt with the color complex as played out on a fictitious college campus in the 1980s. But as Bill Duke and D. Channsin Berry’s latest documentary Dark Girls reveals, this issue is far from closed. With honest and painful commentary from black women of various ages and complexions, the film “Dark Girls pulls back our country’s curtain to reveal that the deep seated biases and hatreds of racism – within and outside of the Black American culture – remain bitterly entrenched.”
Dark Girls will be shown at Atlanta’s fabulous Fox Theater on November 19 at 7:30 PM, and will be followed by a live discussion with Bill Duke and D. Channsin Berry. For ticket information, click here.
