Shadeism (New Documentary)
Not something I’m unfamiliar with. Definitely want tons of people to see this.
This documentary short looks specifically at how ‘shadism’ affects young womyn within the African, Caribbean, and South Asian diasporas. Through the eyes and words of 5 young womyn and 1 little girl - all females of colour - the film takes us into the thoughts and experiences of each. Overall, ‘Shadeism’ explores where shadeism comes from, how it directly affects us as womyn of colour, and ultimately, begins to explore how we can move forward through dialogue and discussion.
saw this movie and it absolutely broke my heart on a lot of levels!
