I Am Beautiful is seeking the participation of pre-teens and teens of color (between the ages of 11-16)to share their stories, feelings and experiences about colorism as part of an exciting new project titled “Colorism and Me”. The project will document the stories of parents or guardians, young children, pre-teens and teens sharing personal experiences, thoughts, feelings, and emotions about their personal experiences with colorism.

“Colorism and Me” will explore experiences focusing on hair, skin color,facial features (nose, eye color and lips), attitudes, family and relationship issues, the effects of colorism on young children, experiences in the classroom, family stories about colorism, beliefs, and other areas of life affected by colorism.
