There’s Bleaching and there’s Tanning! Raven Symone, Iyanla Vanzant & More Actresses Reveal they had to Make themselves Darker for Some Roles

For a many partial about final year a universe could not know because it was required for a lot of Hollywood stars to make themselves lighter only to get some-more recognition, though a brief documentary now shows that some actresses also had to make their skin demeanour darker to get sold roles.

One of such actresses is Raven Symone, who suggested that she had to go to a tanning room 3 times a week only to get herself prepared for her breakthrough show, ‘That’s so Raven’.

The documentary, called ‘Lighter Girls’ is a follow-up to a 2011 critically acclaimed broadcasted documentary “Dark Girls.” The film project, destined by famed maestro executive and actor Bill Duke, will reportedly offer a broader viewpoint on a theme of colorism in a Black community, along with all of a stereotypes and myths.

Hollywood faces such as actress Amber Rose, news woman Soledad O’Brien, ’70s high-fashion model Pat Cleveland, comedienne Kim Whitley, and mythological actress Diahann Carroll will also offer an contemplative demeanour on life as light-skinned Black women.

The Light Girls movie will also speak about a argumentative subject of skin bleaching, and plead how Hollywood might mostly go with darker-skinned actresses instead of lighter-skinned actresses to infer that they aren’t inequitable toward light girls.

“Light Girls” will atmosphere on Monday, Jan 19th during 9:00 pm on a OWN Network.
