About the Film

“Dark Girls” is a Bill Duke directed film that discusses the controversy of race and color in the African Diaspora and how it impacts dark skinned African American females. It further explores the roots of classism, racism, and the lack of self-esteem in the African Diaspora and especially in the U.S.
