Filmmaker Channsin Berry puts his heart into everything he does.

DARK GIRLS, the revealing documentary that he made with director Bill Duke makes its way to the Oprah Winfrey Network, Sunday, June 23rd, from Urban Winter Productions. Told in part through first person narratives, DARK GIRLS is a probing account of the emotional scars suffered at the demeaning comments of a skewed perspective on beauty. Berry and Duke hold a mirror up to the chasm of color within the black community.

Women from varied backgrounds share their personal stories, touching on deeply ingrained beliefs Chann Berry DarkGirlsPosterand attitudes of society, while allowing generations to heal as they learn to love themselves for who they are.
