DYNAMICS OF COLORISM TALK RADIO (January 22, 2015)
Listen in on a lively and uplifting discussion on the friendships girls and women of color make amongst and between themselves — especially focusing on friendships between light-skinned and dark-skinned girls/women. I am honored to have participated in this discussion. The show, hosted by Dr. Donnamaria Culbreth and Dr. Julie Jung-Kim, is archived here: Dynamics of Colorism Talk Radio. We debunk the negative stereotypes perpetuated by the media: the idea that girls & women of color continue to fight, dislike, and treat each other disparately because of skin color (i.e., light girls don’t get along with dark girls and vice versa).
