The NAACP, Berkshire County Branch invites the public to join the branch and our special guest Assistant Professor of Africana Studies at Williams, Dr. VaNatta S. Ford for Colorism 101. During this presentation Dr. Ford will discuss the history of colorism, how it functions, and strategies to resist colorist behaviors and practices.

Colorism has been defined as the privileging of light skin tone over dark skin tone. The stigma of colorism continues to produce discord, distrust, discrimination, and cultural disconnects between Black and White individuals as well as within the Black American family and community.
