“Dark Girls” Directors/Producers D. Channsin Berry and Bill Duke (Dark Girls, LLC) are coming to Philadelphia on Saturday March 10, 7 PM for a special screening of their controversial new documentary at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby.


Record ticket sales in Oakland & Atlanta in November 2011 and NYC & DC in January have fueled the demand for additional dates. Berry and Duke will make an appearance for “Question and Answer” session at the conclusion of the screening.


Duke and Berry have focused their cameras on an American cultural bias that also runs deep in cultures around the world. The film features poignant, unfiltered, and penetrating interviews with Black women of the darkest hues for their emotional exposés.


Two years in the making, “Dark Girls” pulls back a cultural curtain to reveal that the deep-seated biases and hatreds of racism – within and outside of the Black American culture – remain bitterly entrenched. Featuring 2012 Academy Award nominee Viola Davis.
