National Black Out_1There’s a move this holiday season by some 500 organizations with diverse leaders from 40 states, that have formed a ‘economic boycott’ and National Black-Out this holiday season.

The National Black-out will begin on black Friday November 27, 2015, all across America; with demonstrations and boycotts against retail chains such as; Wal-Mart, Target, shopping malls, banks and other big companies that take in billions of black dollars but are not owned and/or controlled by African Americans.

The National Black-out is a direct action against selected stores and companies who directly or indirectly contribute to the current suffering (s) of African Americans and/or “people of color” throughout the state.

“Brown Little Me” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

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.

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.
