38. Seeing Through Colorism

Finding Humanity

08-12-2021 • 34 mins

Ronald fell in love with television as a child, but as a queer, black boy from a Latinx household, representation was deeply lacking. In this episode, we focus on "colorism," or discrimination that occurs based on skin color, and how misrepresentations of people of color in the media often have real-life consequences.

Featuring Ronald Hinton, actor, writer, and founder of Shared Soil Productions, ReNika Moore, Racial Justice Program Director at the ACLU, and Dr. Mia White, professor of Environmental Studies at The New School.
