“The barriers people of color, black women especially, face in their families, in the education and judical system and in society are vast. When your skin is darker, the barriers can multiply. We have to learn how to identify wrongful and harmful behavior and not let it define our craft, art, or talents. Who Told You Your Black Is Not Beautiful is an important film because learning is the first step to gaining back your self-confidence, courage and power.”
