This is an important documentary because this still exists today and the problem of black people accepting their natural skin color has been a issue forever and we rarely address this outside of the occasional joke by comedians.
The film was directed by Urban Winter Entertainment head D. Channsin Berry and Duke Media CEOBill Duke.
“When Bill called me with the idea of a documentary about dark-skinned women, I was in right away. Being a dark-skinned Black man, like Bill, I have gone through similar traumas,” Berry said. “Being separated and discriminated against by our own people. It stifles your self-esteem. Bill and I shared our similar experiences and immediately understood that we knew the best way to approach this.”
