Santa Monica College is pleased to host a screening of Bill Duke’s latest documentary Light Girls Tuesday, Oct. 20. A separate Q&A discussion with Duke – the film’s creator, director, and producer – will be held Thursday, Oct. 22.

Both events are FREE and will be held at 11:15 a.m. in Room 165 of the SMC Humanities & Social Science building, 1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica. Sponsored by the SMC Associates (www.smc.edu/associates) and SMC Black Collegians. Seating is on a first-arrival basis.

In the documentary film Light Girls, award-winning filmmaker Duke continues the conversation on colorism, sharing the experiences of lighter-skinned women and diving into the discussion of skin color, privilege, pain, and prejudice through interviews with Russell Simmons, Soledad O’Brien, Diahann Carroll, Iyanla Vanzant, Michaela Angela Davis, and many others.

During the Q&A session two days later, Duke will talk about Light Girls, which is his latest documentary. The actor/director/producer and humanitarian is the founder and CEO of Duke Media, and has worked in film and TV for more than 30 years. He helped pave the way for African Americans in cinema, and has been honored by the Directors Guild of America with a Lifetime Achievement Tribute.
