*The Baobab Presents...*

DARK GIRLS

*Friday, December 16th, 7:00 PM*

Dark Girls is a fascinating and controversial documentary film that goes
underneath the surface to explore the prejudices that dark-skinned women
face throughout the world. Dark Girls is a 2012 documentary film by
American filmmakers Bill Duke and D. Channsin Berry. It documents
colorism based
on skin tone among African Americans, a subject still considered taboo by
many black Americans. The film contains interviews with notable African
Americans including Viola Davis. It also reports on a new version of the
1940s black doll experiment by Kenneth and Mamie Clark, which proved that
black children had internalized racism by having children select a white or
a black doll (they typically chose white) based on questions asked.
Discussion will follow this film.

*UPCOMING EVENTS*

Narrated by the poet Maya Angelou and directed by author and filmmaker M.
K. Asante, The Black Candle is about the struggle and triumph of

The documentary traces the Kwanzaa holiday's growth out of the Black Power
Movement in the 1960s to its present-day reality. Discussion will follow.
