To all Black women out there, what 10 pearls of advice would you give to a young dark skinned Black


girl to be self-confident and proud of her skin color in spite of the negative distractors? In the documentary DARK GIRLS, the movie discussed the negativity that dark skinned Black women and girls received on a constant basis. In one segment of the movie, there was one dark skinned Black girl who did not want to be called Black. She believed it to be quite derogatory. One dark skinned Black woman indicated that the most negativity she received was from fellow Black people. One Black youth indicated that he would "look funny" being with a dark skinned Black girl.
