It looks like Bill Duke’s documentary, Dark Girls is heading to Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network this June.
It’s been traveling the film festival circuit since its TIFF debut in the fall of 2011, and, at one time, seemed like it would get a theatrical release, but that never happened.
It was a year ago when Bull Duke announced that he was developing 2 feature documentary follow-ups to Dark Girls, after a screening of that film at the Pan African Film Festival in 2012.
Sharing with the audience during a Q&A after the screening, Duke said that the two follow-up films would include: Yellow Brick Road, which will look at the *colorism* issue from the fairer-skinned black woman’s point of view (Dark Girls was from the darker-skinned black woman’s POV); and the other would be titled What Is A Man, which will explore what masculinity and manhood is, from the beginning of humanity to the present.
Dark Girls will premiere on OWN on Sunday, June 23rd, at 10pm ET.
