Description

This video confronts the corrosive impact of racism on the self-esteem of African Americans. The narrative focuses especially on the burden of "colorism"--the caste system that classifies blacks according to how closely their appearance conforms to a European ideal. The film helps viewers examine their own feelings around this issue. The two copies of this video are labeled tapes #1 and #3.
