VIDEO: CELEBRATING DIVERSITY

Monday, June 18, 2018



Here is a great story and a 1 minute video (scroll down) that appeared on the BBC website just two days ago.

Kenyan model Olivia Sang wants to empower women of all skin tones. She tells BBC Africa’s One Minute Stories about how she hopes to challenge what is known as colourism, in the fashion industry. 
Colourism is prejudice against people who have a darker skin tone - and/or the preferential treatment of those who are of the same race but lighter-skinned.
Diversification
Here at TTM, as we've discussed before, models and influencers are so diverse these days. It's great to celebrate and embrace such a range of looks and personalities. 
Olivia - we salute you!
