    Black is beautiful.

    Just that small clip brought tears to my eyes. Being a black woman with darker skin, I could relate to all that was being said…. I felt like they were talking to me. This is an issue that is so prevalent in our community yet it is addressed so little.The issue of skin tone in the black community is so obvious yet it is treated like a myth. I feel that this film is something that is needed and absolutely necessary within the black community and truly for all women. I would love and greatly appreciate revicieving more information about the film and how to see the entire thing.

    Where are the dark/brown skinned Black women that actually take PRIDE in their skin tone??? I am not light-skinned, and I feel just as lovely and loved as my pale skinned sisters! ALL shades of our races should be appreciated!

    I can’t relate at all to this video, because from my youth, I have been told that I am pretty and smart (and had the grades to back it up, lol)! I feel that I am just as worthy as my light-skinned counterpart. There is one thing that I will share with everyone that I have observed over the years: just because one is light-skinned, this does not mean they are cute (or have “nice” hair, or are smart)!!

    Can you please feature girls like me, who are down with being brown? Girls who are truly Black and PROUD!!
