    The Oprah Winfrey Network, better known as OWN, aired a follow up portion to the 2011 documentary, “Dark Girls,” with the premiere of “Light Girls” on Jan. 19. On the Monday of Dr. King’s celebratory weekend, thousands gathered to watch and tweet their reactions to the two-hour documentary. With better lighting, more popular commentators and a bigger budget, Bill Duke and his team brought the topic of colorism to the forefront of watcher’s minds across America and it certainly hit a nervehttp://www.enstarz.com/articles/61164/20150120/light-girls-documentary-2015-watch-amber-rose-nya-lee-iyanla-more-recount-issues-of-colorism-fans-on-twitter-keep-trend-for-24-hours-video.htm
