Call in to speak with the host
Following a screening of the documentary Dark Girls on March 10 in Philadelphia co-producer D. Channsin Berry held a Q&A session with the audience. Cyberspace Sanctuary producer and host Junious Ricardo Stanton was present to record the session. The film Dark Girls examines colorism within the African diaspora, how people of African ancestry males and females alike have been impacted by racism. It shows how we have internalized the notion that dark skin is ugly,how we have been conditioned to believe and act out in our lives thenotion richly endowed melanin women are less beautiful, less desirable and less attractive as partners. The film shares the experiences of dark skinned women interspersed with comments by mental health professionals, historians black and white men to paint a disturbing picture of menticide and self hatred that permeates the African diaspora. Thankfully the film also provides glimpses of resilience and healing.
It's good to talk.
