Bill Dukes has done it again.
Dukes’ features another documentary, and this time concerning how colorism affects lighter skinned black women.
Duke’s “Dark Girls” sparked much needed dialogue, testimony, empathy, and acknowledgement. It must only be expected that “Light Girls” was created not to contrast, but to continue the conversation of colorism that plagues Black communities.
The fact that white supremacy has traumatized and scarred our communities is not our fault, and the affects of this trauma–colorism to be exact, cannot be denied. It is no secret that the casting system of skin color has always worked to the benefit of white supremacy in an effort to keep POC’s isolated and cruel to one another.
