A Question of Color is the first documentary to confront a painful and long taboo subject: the disturbing feelings many African Americans harbor about themselves and their appearance. African American filmmaker Kathe Sandler digs into the often-subconscious world of "color consciousness," a caste system based on how closely skin color, hair texture and facial features conform to a European ideal.
