beautiful and wise…i’m in love!
Brianna McCarthy : After Colour
After Colour takes a look at the contemporary dynamic of complexion defining beauty in diasporan women. It examines the representation of women of different shades of skin, by themselves and by others, and the idea of ‘shadism’, both in Trinidad and within a wider, global discussion that’s happening right now.
This right here? This right here? This is the manifestation of all the ideas I’ve only recently considered thinking about, especially since I’ve been attending college in New Orleans and have been bombarded with the Creole vs. Black, good genes vs. bad genes message.
Thanks, Ms. McCarthy! I really appreciate your voice (and I love your accent!)
love it! such important work is till left to do! these conversations around race, identity, womanhood, and beauty are ongoing. i don’t forget this.
