The dark and light of Colorism.  How does colorism perform on the local and global in the shaping of identity for African and African Diaspora women and girls? I share two conversations.  What are your thoughts?

I was an active audience participant in the below audience discussion.  As you will see from the video of the play, the sharing by the production team, and the audience discussion, there are a full load of complexities on the table.  The play itself begins at 3:16 and ends at 20:34.  The audience discussion begins at 22.58.  The Director of the Multicultural Center in Cambridge speaks at the beginning of the video and at times during the video’s transition from play to audience discussion.   What are your thoughts?
