After the success of last year’s documentary, “Dark Girls,” the Oprah Winfrey Network has once again teamed up with award winning film maker Bill Duke to continue the conversation on the controversial topic of colorism. This time, “Light Girls” takes an in depth look at the advantages and disadvantages to being of a lighter complexion. It boldly dives into topics such as bullying, skin bleaching and the trending social media separation, #teamlightskin versus #teamdarkskin.
The documentary features interviews with Russell Simmons, Soledad O’Brien, Diahann Carroll, India Arie, Iyanla Vanzant, Michaela Angela Davis, Essence Atkins, Kym Whitley, Raven Salli Richardson-Whitfield and more.
