The poignant and culturally significant "Dark Girls" is an American documentary that takes an unprecedented look at perceptions of skin tone, and how it affects the African-American experience. With candid interviews of prominent ethnosociologists including Viola Davis, the feature-length film traces the history of African-American cultural norms and identifications by skin tone, including an unspoken preference among many African-American men for women with a lighter skin tone.

Winning international acclaim for its honesty and willingness to take a serious look at an oft-ignored issue, the film rolls together a mix of scientific data and subjective interviews to offer something new to the American racial discussion.
