Join us for a screening of “Dark Girls” on Nov. 18, as part of the 2020 From Slavery to Freedom Film Series presented by the African American Program of the Heinz History Center.

Dr. Huberta Jackson-Lowman will discuss the film and place into cultural and psychological context the impact of colorism on women of African descent.

ABOUT THE FILM
“Dark Girls” is a Bill Duke directed film that discusses the controversy of race and color in the African Diaspora and how it impacts dark skinned African American females. It further explores the roots of classism, racism, and the lack of self-esteem in the African Diaspora and especially in the U.S.

Admission is free. Registration information will be available closer to the program date.
