Description

THE JANUARY 20TH EVENT WILL BE POSTPONED UNTIL FEB 17TH DUE TO IMPENDING SNOW STORM. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT MONTH.


Colorism: discrimination based on skin color, also known ascolorism or shadeism, is a form of prejudice or discrimination in which people are treated differently based on the social meanings attached to skin color.

Honestly Speaking, Inc. is on a mission to change the narrative on the divisive and destructive issue of colorism in the African American community. We are clear, however, that this issue is cross-cultural and expands into Asian, African and other populations, and are inviting everyone to join the conversation. Our babies are still killing themselves and bullying others because their skin is too dark or too light. Too many adults are walking around broken hearted and broken spirited because the weight of the colorism bag is too heavy to carry. The retail market for skin bleaching products are at an all time high, as is depression in kids and adults around the world. But, how do we change things? How do we change the narrative on how we see ourselves and others? How do we begin for some and continue for others, the healing process as individuals and as a collective? How do we raise a new generation of souls that see and appreciate those with different hues? THAT is the conversation we will begin to have!!

As a backdrop for Part I of the conversation, we will view snippets from the Bill Duke and D. Berry's film, "Dark Girls."


This is a family event being held at the great Terra Cafe in the Historic Arts distric of Baltimore. Come hungry, open-minded and ready to change the world, one word at a time.

Let's burn the brown paper bag!!

Nicole C. Morgan

P.S. tissue will be provided free of charge (smile)!
