‘Charcoal’ tackles colorism

We live for movies and documentaries that tackle issued that women of color face.

Charcoal hones in on the destructive generational cycle of colorism, from the perspective of a child, a teenager, and a mother. The film follows the women as they seek self-acceptance and redemption.



Charcoal has been screening at the 8th Annual Silicon Valley African Film Festival which started last week Friday and ends on October 11.
