Description

THE HIDDEN SCIENCE OF COLOURISM
What is Colourism? Why does it still plague communities of colour to this day? Does Colourism affect men of colour? Or is it just an issue with women? Is it true that men perpetuate Colourism without even realising it? Why are skin lightening creams so popular in the UK, despite the well-documented risks? Why is the use of filters and photo manipulation on social media sites so popular? Why are children subliminally being taught to hate dark skin?
Colourism is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “prejudice or discrimination against individuals with dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group”. What is the root of this problem? Where did it start? And why is it so effective? All of this, plus much much more, will be revealed in this eye-opening presentation.
Topics that will be covered include:
  • The History of Colourism
  • Colourism in The Entertainment Industry
  • Dangerous Chemicals in Skin Creams
  • Importance of Melanin and Pigmentation
  • The Truth About Ultraviolet Rays
  • The Secret Science of Sunlight
  • European Standards of Beauty
  • Subliminal Self Hate Messages in The Media
Plus much more..
