COLORISM

Around the world, women within their respective races continue to experience the pain and alienation associated with the issue of colorism, the inherent belief that one skin tone is better or worse than another. The perceptions attached to skin color and tone controls everyday interactions between people. This issue causes disparities in areas such as income, education, housing, and marriage. This fact is no different in the Black communities of the United States, and still requires awareness and healing.

After SELMA

The road from Selma to Montgomery, AL wasn't without opposition as Martin Luther King, Jr. led thousands from the African American community into new and deserved territory known as the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Now, as seen in these photographs, streets mirror similar scenes as community members of all races mourn the wrongful deaths of black boys and young men, while still fighting for what they thought they had all along - civil rights.  Their sentiments can be heard:  “We have marched from Selma, but 50 years later, where are we now?”
