People don't even look at me': eight black women discuss politics of light and dark skin

As part of our Shades of Black series, we invited eight women to talk about their experience of colorism in their relationships, careers and everyday life.

Colorism is the discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone.

This means that darker-skinned black people have to fight prejudice even within their own community, where lighter skin is seen as more desirable.

As such, darker-skinned black people can experience both racism and colorism.
