Our Time - Colorism in America: SHADE and WHITE CHOCOLATE

Racial stereotyping has an insidious history in the U.S. While gains in civil rights have increased significantly, younger generations continue to perpetuate harmful labels, often subtle ones, that undermine people of color. Filmmaker Antreise Lacey (SHADE) confronts the terms "team light skin/team dark skin" and filmmaker Shaienne Knox examines black hair styles that hew to white beauty standards.
