DETROIT (WXYZ) — The Detroit Public Library will host a free screening of the Dark Girls documentary during Black History Month.

Produced by filmmaker Bill Duke, the 2011 documentary explored "the deep-seated biases and attitudes about skin color – particularly dark-skinned women, outside of and within the Black American culture."

The screening will be held on Saturday, Feb 15 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Chase Branch on 17731 W. 7 Mile Road in Detroit.

The event is free and open to the public.
