Skinned
9 January 2016 | by marksss-32705See all my reviews

Dear. Ms. LisaRaye McCoy,

I want to thank you for that beautiful movie skinned there was so many things in that movie that reflected me in my life growing up being dark skinned it was wonderful to see such a beautiful movie it really touch my heart in my soul.

Ms.McCoy thank you so much I give it a thousand stars. This need to be on the big screen where everyone can see it in schools as well.

I hope one day I will get the opportunity to share my life story and the things that I went through on the big screen just as you have done in sharing this story. Ms.Mcoy because of you and see this move I now can pick up my pen again and start back on writing my life story and not feel shame to tell the world.

Once again thank you Ms. McCoy may God continue to bless you and keep lighting up your life with your gift that he has given you.

The gift that on man can ever take away from you.

Sincerely Michele Thompson
