Nearly three years after this  film was released, Bill Duke‘s and D. Channsin Berry’s  Dark Girls is having its world television premiere on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN cable channel tonight, June 23.  Set your DVRs and any other recording device for 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, and 7 p.m. Pacific.  Above is a smidgen of reaction by black girls and women to Dark Girls by Jet Magazine; below is a sit-down  interview with Bill Duke regarding the genesis of the film: why he decided to make it, and its general reception among black women nationwide; both are video that are at least a year old.

And then, if brothers these days cannot abide being with a dark-skinned woman (and that’s another story), how is it that some white men are attracted to black women?

Yes, indeed: this documentary is going to be food for thought this week.   It’s nothing new, but this stuff just keeps reoccurring because of the pull of this negative culture.   Get your Facebook and Twitter friends together, as well as your regular real-time friends, and check it out.  Here is a link to one of my previous stories regarding Dark Girls, dated in May 2011.
