About the Panelists

This week we’re tackling Colorism, a form of racial discrimination based on the shade of an individual’s skin tone, favoring lighter skin. It can occur both within a specific ethnic group and across ethnic groups. Since it permeates multiple communities of color, and globally at that. It shows up in multiple aspects of life, showing up at home, embedding in cultures, and even in work and academic environments. We’re joined by Shawn LaRe’ Brinkley, Jerome Ejan, Augustine Tanner-Ihm, Roatanea Vonei, and friends of the foundation Harmony Oostdyk, Andrew McDonald, and Nevi. A very important discussion that we hope to spark reflection and continued conversations.

Hosted by Samuel J. Ashe II, MBA
