Virtual Screening: Dark Girls

November 18, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the Heinz History Center 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.


“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. Please register in advance. You will be emailed a link to the YouTube Live program upon registration.

For more information, please contact Samuel W. Black, director of African American Programs at swblack@heinzhistorycenter.org.
