“It’s funny, one of the lighting guys came up — I love him to death — he goes, ‘Raven, I need you to stop tanning’,” Symoné says in the documentary of the time she spent filming her show. “‘You’re getting too dark and we have to relight the whole entire show.’ I was like, ‘Sorry, I was just trying to be pretty!’”

The documentary titled ”Light Girls” explores the experiences of lighter-skinned black women, skin color, preference, privilege, pain and prejudice.
