Grab a friend come and join us for a fun and creative informal discussion on a burning issue affecting Africans all over the world, a complex phenomenon many know little about: Colourism (also known as shadesim or The Brown Paper Bag Test).
We’ll be exploring the implications of this form of intraracial discrimination, the notion that darker skin is less desirable or “uglier” than lighter, fairer skin.
Date: Thursday 25 May 2017 (Africa Day)
Venue: Chez Zandi Bistro, 328 Herbert Chitepo Avenue (next to Alliance Francaise)
