The show was highly emotional and moving—colorism is a passionate subject amongst women of color throughout the world.

Bill Duke knew he wanted to address these women with a book. Rather than a non-fiction book on the topic of colorism, he produced 'Dark Girls', a magnificent collection featuring accomplished dark-skinned women from all walks of life. 

In the book, celebrities such as Lupita Nyong'o, Vanessa Williams, Loretta Devine, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Judge Mablean Ephriam, Brandi and Karli Harvey, and over seventy-five other outstanding women share intimate insights into what their dark skin means to them.
