This documentary takes a look at perceptions of beauty in the Black community, especially as they pertain to colorism/shadism. We define colorism and explore the reasons why it has prevailed in almost all cultures and societies in the world. Do we value women of dark complexion the same way we those of a lighter complexion.Who is responsible, and what can be done to halt the perpetuation of discrimination against those of a darker skin color.
