Filmmaker Francesca Andre will screen her short film “Charcoal,” which captures the parallel stories of two Black women and their lifelong journey to overcome internalized colorism as they find self-acceptance and ultimately redemption. Then, in a conversation with UCSB psychologist Dr. Meridith Merchant, Andre will discuss her creative process, including the choice to focus on the theme of colorism.
