the project

My project is an awareness campaign with the purpose of providing information on the issue of colorism. Through photography people of all skin tones will be highlighted in order to illustrate the beauty and variety in all colored people. Also, different individuals will have their personal stories posted about how colorism(skin tone, hair texture, full lips,etc) effects them in order to articulated the issue of colorism in a more relatable, understandable way. Additionally, local business, organizations,and events will be posted in order to promote more community involvement. The main goal of my organization is to implement more self-love and unity in the community.

the steps

Through photography people of all skin tones will be highlighted in order to illustrate the beauty and variety in all colored people. Also, interviews will be held with different individuals and their personal stories are posted about how colorism(skin tone, hair texture, full lips,etc) effects them in society in order to articulated the issue of colorism in a more relatable, understandable way. Additionally, local business, organizations,and events will be posted in order to promote more community involvement. The main goal of my organization is to implement more self-love and unity in the community.

why we're doing it

I am creating this organization because I want to implement more self-love and unity in the community. Because of colorism, darkerskinned women are denied privilages in area such as housing, education, and business that lighterskinned people of color are constantly granted. Ligheter skinned people also serve 12% less prision sentences over their darker counterpart and are even perfered over darker women in marrage. Also, negative steryotypes are placed of different people. These things lead to self-hate and hate for others, and cause a disconnection between people and a stunt in the growth of unifying all people. If one race is destroyed internally and others are unaware of the issue than people cannot unite as a whole, and I want to be a catylyst in promoting unity and self-love.
