Guest Speakers - Pauline Stepney Anita Powell
This week we have the pleasure of Pauline and Anita joining us as our guest speakers and they will be doing a much needed presentation on Colourism.
Colourism, as defined by The Oxford Dictionary, is prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group.
We must start to look inwards for resolution. Why do we oppress our own people when we already have to deal with the devastation of racism and the legacy of colonialism. We need to be accountable to each other and ourselves for the damage we do to one another when we intentionally or unintentionally use slurs such as black-attack and blick. We must stop equating the darkness of our skin tones with poverty, ugliness and despair. We have to do more.
Sharing Dreams and Struggles Within our Black African Caribbean Community.
We are looking forward to meeting our black African Caribbean community and others from anywhere within the UK and abroad. Being able to converse and share things with others who share the same heritage and ideals is indeed a good way of coming together in unity, solidarity and strength.
We are encouraging our community to strive towards the changes that need to happen along with offering support in any way possible. Lets engage in some quality time and enjoy sharing anything we feel to discuss together, during our regular online sessions.
Systemic and institutional racism along with oppression is and has always been prevalent in the UK regarding our black/brown African Caribbean community residents, this must and has to change now.
