Additional Information

The Souls of Black Girls is a provocative news documentary that takes a critical look at media images-how they are instituted, established and controlled. The documentary also examines the relationship between the historical and existing media images of women of color and raises the question of whether they may be suffering from a self-image disorder as a result of trying to attain the standards of beauty that are celebrated in media images.

I'm a father of two young black girls, and the topic of this documentary is near and dear to my heart. That's the only reason I suffered through the overbearing narrative of this documentary's director. The subjects that she interviews for the documentary are never allowed to speak for themselves. They're given perhaps 30 seconds before the director's monotone, redundant and vapid commentary is inserted between what seems to be about a hundred segues. This is truly tragic, because the short snippets that we're allowed to hear from the voices that SHOULD be featured in this documentary are profound, insightful and moving. I wish my daughters could hear from the people that were interviewed rather than the director. It's as if the director was afraid of being upstaged. It left me feeling like there was almost some kind of conspiracy to make sure the truth that was being spoken on camera would never be allowed to be heard undiluted. Ordinarily, I would give anything so ham-handed a one... Read more
This documentary deals with issues that exist because of stereotypical, racial profiling of young Black girls when they are at their most vulnerable, (Puberty).

The journey takes you from self esteem issues due to skin color, features and hair texture....all isms that come out of American whites defining Black Beauty. We watch young girls talk about self hate because of some stereotypes.....but this documentary puts the issues on the table and through conversation with famous Black women who had to deal with isms...these young girls come to realize that they are unique and Black Beauty must only be defined by Black people. This documentary is a wake-up call for all young girls who read fashion mags and watch TV. It helps you understand why weave wearing, light complexion, made up images are not necessarily beautiful. Kinky hair, dark skin, bold features...are all beautiful....love the you that you are.....
This documentary was designed to SPARK conversation not provide answers. It was to help you shine light on a topic that is NOT discussed. Even young men need to see this because they are not understanding how they are treating or playing into the stereotypes.The part with the White Women discussing Black Women was really great. With all this mess happening with Nicki Minja and Lil Kim, when you look at and hear Kelly Rowland's music/videos, it tells us that we are not having conversations with our BLACK GIRLS! Buy the Video an start a movement. I am a man with NO KIDS and I am doing my part!
