Media That Matters: "A Girl Like Me"

I first heard about this video by 17-year-old filmmaker Kiri Davis
at the Center for New Words, and when it was mentioned again in a discussion about race and racism over at Thinking Girl's blog, I thought I would include it here:

hey Tracey,

thanks for posting that video - I have no idea how to do that kind of stuff, I'm not very computer savvy, so hats off!

anyway, how freaking sad is that? breaks my heart to see these beautiful, smart young girls talking about thinking they were ugly because their skin is dark. it's a shame how deeply racism gets internalized by all of us.

TG: I'm not too savvy, either, because I never noticed this comment! I didn't realize I had them set up for moderation, so I assumed I wasn't getting any comments.

And anyway, I see that you've since figured out how to embed videos, so hooray!
