Charcoal" which at its core, is a story about redemption and overcoming pain. This film focuses on 2 black women, who have been victims of colorism. Although there are vast distances between each of them, their lives are parallel. They constantly face a barrage of social messages that erode their self-worth and self-esteem. Yet through the pain that they’ve endured, these women go through a metamorphosis. They take their power back, fully embracing in their dark complexion and stopping the cycle of self-hatred.
