PHILADELPHIA, PA — Who Told You Your Black Is Not Beautiful? by Karen Moore shines a light on colorism to inspire and empower women to embrace their beauty in the face of discrimination.
As audiences across the country continue to grapple with issues of colorism, representation, and identity, Karen Moore’s latest film, Who Told You Your Black Is Not Beautiful? offers a powerful and intimate exploration of colorism and its impact on Black women. The film features six women from diverse backgrounds who bravely share their personal experiences with colorism, using spoken word and storytelling to convey the pain and trauma they have endured.
The film highlights these women’s incredible resilience and strength as they rewrite their own stories and find healing through self-acceptance and self-love. From being told they are “too dark” or “too light” to be beautiful to facing discrimination in their personal and professional lives, these women have all been affected by the pervasive influence of colorism. By embracing their unique beauty and rejecting the toxic messages they have internalized about what it means to be Black and beautiful, these women can reclaim their power and inspire others to do the same.

By giving voice to the experiences and perspectives of these six women, Moore has created a work that is both profoundly personal and universal in its message of self-love and acceptance.

The virtual screening offers an opportunity for audiences worldwide to engage with this powerful and timely work and spark meaningful conversations about colorism and its impact on Black women.
