• This coming Sunday, June 23rd at 10 p.m. OWN will broadcast Dark Girls, a revealing documentary about colorism in our community. The film originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011 and has since garnered a lot of attention. “These ladies broke it down to the degree that dark-skinned ‘sisters’ with ‘good’ hair vs. dark-skinned women with ‘kinky’ hair were given edges when it came time for coveted promotions,” said D. Channsin Berry, the film’s co-director. [Clutch Mag]
• Nelson Mandela’s wife, Graca Machel, issued a statement about the former leader’s declining health. She’d like to thank the world for its “love and generosity.” “The messages have come by letter, by SMS, by phone, by Twitter, by Facebook, by email, cards, flowers and human voices, in particular the voices of children in schools or singing outside our home,” said Graca Machel. “We have felt the closeness of the world and the deepest meaning of strength and peace.” She released the short statement on Monday, Mandela’s 10th day in the hospital.

• The lawyer for Miguel’s injured fan, Khyati Shah, says his client has yet to receive any type of financial assistance from Miguel’s camp. Shah reportedly still suffers from difficulties stemming from the incident in May. “Khyati’s well-being has been and continues to be of the utmost concern to Miguel,” said the singer’s spokeswoman in a statement. It’s still unclear if Shah will sue Miguel. [Grio]
