Abundant Sun is excited to announce that it is hosting a charity event entitled 'Energising Women and Strengthening Societies', which features the UK Premiere Screening of the documentary film Dark Girls, by Filmmakers Bill Duke and D. Channsin Berry.
Dark Girls is an honest and emotionally hard-hitting film which explores the impact of deep-seated biases and attitudes towards dark-skinned women, outside of and within the African-American culture.
Our guests will have the opportunity to view this remarkable film, have a Q&A with one of its producers/directors D.Channsin Berry, and discuss the important issue of colourism, its impacts upon the Black and Minority Ethnic communities, and ways to remedy some of the negative effects.
By getting involved, you will not only be enriching yourself, you will also be providing help to a very important charity. The profits from ticket sales will be donated to Make Every Woman Count.
More good news is that businesses or individual donors actively involved in gender equality and women’s empowerment can get involved in the event. Please click here to find out more about corporate and individual sponsorship packages.
