The History of the Dark Skin is Beautiful Campaign


World's First Dark Skin Activist Rashida Strober

Rashida Strober is the Inventor of DARK SKIN ACTIVISM. For years dark skinned women have been branded the ugliest women on the planet. Dark skinned women have been called every name in the book. Manly. Burnt. Darkie. Blackie. Dirty. Ghetto. They have suffered in silence for years attacked by friends, family and society. Dark skin female beauty discrimination is the big elephant in the room in the black community. It’s the topic that no one wants to discuss publicaly, yet it’s talked about within the confines of trusted circles. Some have recognized it as a problem and gave attention to it in popular media. A body of scholarly research has emerged addressing the issue. But no one until now has taken on the task of eliminating dark skinned beauty discrimination permanently.

Taking on a world-wide ignored issue, Rashida Strober, the world’s first dark skinned activist, has created the first campaign in the world to eradicate dark skinned beauty discrimination. Since 98’ the dark skinned activist has been relentlessly advocating for what she calls “dark skinned beauty equality”. She’s appeared on TV, the cover of the Floridian, on international radio and the featured story for many newspapers. Yet it all started in 1998 when she gave her first historic lecture on the jet black Sudanese beauty, Alek Wek at St. Petersburg College. She spoke boldly against dark skinned beauty discrimination. Her fans will tell you that they have never before seen anyone advocate as hard as she does for dark skin.

A victim of what Rashida coined dark skin mental abuse, she wrote her story. In 2006 she wrote the play turned audio book, She Black but she ain’t ugly: A Dark Skin Girl’s Triumph. The story details her struggles of overcoming poverty and dark skin abuse. Sharing her personal story would not only be therapeutic for her but would also help others. A true pioneer, Rashida’s dark skinned activism is the first of its kind. From France to Africa to New York, she receives messages of support daily from fans around the world. She says the most rewarding part is helping dark skinned women, men and teenagers who confide in her about dark skinned struggles. They count on her to be there, listen and not pass judgment. They know that she truly understands because she’s been there.

The dark skinned activist has gone on to produce dark skinned plays, books and original commentary. Her fans can’t get enough.That’s why she continues to write, speak and act. She wrote the award-winning play A Dark Skinned Woman’s Revenge in 2006 and a book of the same title in 2015. She also wrote How to be the hottest dark skinned chick on the planet, the first motivational book ever for dark skinned females. This book is free at the website
