Next month, the Oprah Winfrey Network is airing Light Girls, the sequel to Bill Duke’s 2011 documentary, Dark Girls.
Light Girls, also directed by Duke, premieres January 19th and will address the privileges and disadvantages of having lighter skin.
The special also features interviews with Soledad O’Brien, Iyanla Vanzant, Diahann Carroll, Tatyana Ali, Amber Rose, India Arie, KeKe Wyatt and more.
Dark Girls premiered on OWN in 2011 and tackled the prejudices facing black people of darker skin. The film sparked a national conversation about black beauty, just as it did during limited screenings in theaters.
