Profound New Documentary - Dark Girls

Dark Girls is a documentary exploring the deep-seated biases and attitudes about skin color particularly dark skinned women, outside of and within the Black American culture. The film is slated for a Fall/Winter 2011 release, is directed and produced by Bill Duke (Duke Media) and D. Channsin Berry (Urban Winter Entertainment).

The independent project, set to premier in October [2011] at the International Black Film Festival in Nashville, is in need of funds to be completed. Duke and Berry’s goal is to raise $250,000 by July 31. They’ve raised, to date, slightly more than $4,700.-Ebony/
