The History of the Dark Skin is Beautiful Campaign
I am the dark skinned activist, Rashida Strober, founder of the dark skin is beautiful campaign international. Before Social Media, and the prevalence of the internet I have been advocating for the beauty of dark skin women and girls from a grassroots level. My advocacy began in 1998 with a speech given at St. Petersburg College about the beautiful Sudanese Model Alek Wek. I spoke about the hatred she received by many who said she was not the standard of beauty for black women.
Since that time I have poured my heart and soul into building the self- esteem of the next generation of dark skin women and girls as well as all dark skin women and girls world-wide. We can no longer sit by while the world continues to ignore the beauty of dark skin. We can no longer sit by watching the billion dollar skin lightening industry consume the self esteem of dark skin beauty on an international scale. I realized that I must use my God given talents and lived experiences as a dark skin woman to propel the dark skin is beautiful campaign to the next level. In 2006 I wrote the play A Dark Skin Woman’s Revenge.
Through the writing, producing and performance of A Dark Skin Woman's Revenge the next level of the campaign was spearheaded. Since 2010 I have personally financed all previous productions of the play, which has been performed at venues like the Prestigious Atlanta Black Theatre Festival and the University of South Florida. Now I am asking for your help to spread the message of the dark skin is beautiful campaign and to take it to the international level! Its never been a time like right now to support this campaign!
