  1. Wow coincidence or what ? I just got the heads UP about the Dark Girls Documentary from a new friend I met at an out-of-state work conference..I’m going to watch this for sure! And also going to re-blog it so my readers can also. As always you keep me so well-informed of the GBN’s that DOES exist; but isn’t always widely publicized. So many times I hear of things like this by word of mouth..And don’t we know that can spread the word like wild fire!
