Colorism and How Ebony Haith Navigated Through a World that Often Treated Her Differently

Three years ago, on September 18, I had the privilege of speaking with Ebony Haith about the issue of colorism and how she navigated through a world that often treated her differently because of her skin color. Our conversation was eye-opening and inspiring, and it ultimately led to Ebony becoming one of our featured writers with her powerful series, In My Skin.

Colorism is a pervasive issue that affects people of all races and backgrounds, but it is particularly damaging within communities of color. It is the belief that lighter skin is more desirable and superior to darker skin, leading to discrimination and prejudice against those with darker complexions. Ebony shared with me her personal experiences of facing colorism and the impact it had on her self-esteem and sense of worth.

Despite the challenges she faced, Ebony refused to let colorism define her. She embraced her skin and her identity, and used her voice to speak out against the injustices she and others like her faced. Through her writing, she has been able to shed light on the harmful effects of colorism and advocate for greater acceptance and inclusivity in our society.

Now, three years later, we are excited to announce the launch of our new website, This platform will continue to amplify voices like Ebony's and provide a space for important conversations about race, identity, and social justice. We invite you to join us on May 1 as we introduce this new chapter in our journey towards a more equitable and inclusive world.

In a world that often seeks to divide us based on superficial characteristics like skin color, it is crucial that we stand together and challenge the systems of oppression that perpetuate these harmful beliefs. We must be assertive in our advocacy for equality and justice, and we must use our platforms to uplift and empower those who have been marginalized.

I urge you to join us in this fight against colorism and all forms of discrimination. Let us come together to create a world where everyone is valued and respected, regardless of the color of their skin. Together, we can make a difference and build a more just and equitable society for all.
