VIDEO: Dark Girls Baltimore, Maryland, movie screening – Interview with moviegoers and filmmakers

The below video from JetMag shows the filmmakers and moviegoers at the screening of the Dark Girls movie in Baltimore, Maryland, and it almost had me in tears again, as women and their daughters talked about being called named as darker-skinned women that were unfair and hurtful.

One woman described that she wanted her daughter to know that it’s okay to be dark-skinned and pretty. Another lighter skinned woman brought her daughter because her daughter had made a comment that she was closer to white, and the woman wanted her daughter to know that they are black women, and that black women come in all different shades.
