Have you been told you’re pretty for a dark-skinned woman? Or you’re too light to be a “real” sister?
Color issues have plagued the black community for decades, and Marita Golden, author of “Don't Play in the Sun: One Woman’s Journey Through the Color Complex” wants to discuss solutions. She hosted a live chat at noon.
On October 26 and 27, Golden hosted the workshop “Sisters Under the Skin: Healing the Wounds of the Color Complex” at the Thurgood Marshall Center in Northwest, Washington. Here is a video excerpt from the event.
Read the chat transcript and tell us how you are overcoming color discrimination within your community. To learn more on this topic, read Golden’s essay, “The color complex in black communities: It’s time for all shades to unite”.
