Little Has Changed -- A Girl Like Me

A teen girl decided to replicate an old sociological experiment and found that little has changed. Back in the 1950s a researcher gave two dolls to black children, one white and one black. They were asked which one they wanted to play with or which one was the good doll and most chose the white doll. Worse, they said the black doll was bad. Fifty years later, the results were the same. 15 out of 21 children chose the white doll.

The short film was featured in the 6th Annual Media That Matters Festival
