In today’s society the idea of what is deemed beauty or beautiful is distorted, leaving many young African American women still struggling with the challenge of their looks. Yes the light skin vs. dark skin colorism is still an issue and conversation which is uncomfortable for some and a curse in thought by many.

In many parts of the world, people are judged not just by their skin color but also by their skin tone. The devaluing of dark-skinned women is still an issue not just in the black community alone but the issue is extremely pervasive in mainstream America as well.

Join me tonight at 8:00 P.M. on “Conversations Of A Sistah” in our continued celebration of Black History month on “Conversations Live” as I welcome Karen Tucker (pictured below), author of the children’s book “Brown Little Me“, a love letter to the little girl inside of her; who struggled with the many issues of identity, fitting-in and self-acceptance.

Karen_Tucker

As an African American woman, Tucker has always had a lifelong battle with understanding, that while having brown skin has so many benefits; there also seems to be resentment for it on so many levels. Ranging from racism to the destructiveness of self hate and complexion complexes, from these struggles “Brown Little Me” came to be.

So tune in tonight and add your two cents to the conversation by calling into the show at 1-347-426-3645. press ‘1’ to speak with the host and access the show at any of the Conversations links in this post.

Please keep all questions and comments topic related.

Meet you on the air!
