OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network to Air World Premiere of “Light Girls” Documentary

ravensymone

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will air the world premiere of “Light Girls” on Monday, January 19 at 9 p.m. – 11 p.m. ET/PT.

The critically acclaimed documentary “Dark Girls” aired on the network last year, and award-winning filmmaker Bill Duke continues the conversation on colorism with “Light Girls,” sharing an in-depth study of the advantages and disadvantages of being a lighter-skinned woman as seen through the eyes of notableentertainers, educators and everyday people.

The film highlights and questions the notion that “light skin makes for an easier life” and provides a global analysis of skin color and its relationship with societal values. 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.
