Shades of Identity: Exploring Colorism in the Black Community

Feb 28, 2024

2-3 p.m.


In honor of Black History Month, Buchanan’s Diversity & Inclusion Council will present an insightful and thought-provoking panel discussion as we delve into the complex and nuanced issue of colorism. This program aims to foster a deeper understanding of the impact of skin tone bias and discrimination, and how it intersects with various aspects of our society.

Attendees will learn about the historical roots and present-day effects of colorism, its impact on educational and professional opportunities, social relationships, media representation, and how colorist attitudes can be dismantled to build a more inclusive society.
