‘Pretty’ Web Series Probing Global Black Beauty Standards Takes On London

Black beauty: oxymoron, political statement, or absurd?

This is one of the many questions that the documentary series Pretty seeks to answer.

Created by Anthonia Opiah of Un-Ruly, the weekly series presents a refreshing take on black women and beauty. Filmed in different locations around the globe, real answers to the question of what is pretty are brought to us by real women whose opinions are summarized in simple yet punchy statements as, “Beauty is Sisterhood”, “Beauty is Knowing Your Enough”, and “Beauty is Questioning Beauty.”
