50 Shades of Melanin

Founded by Naomi Grant, Look At My Black Beauty is an online platform documenting the black female experience in the 21st Century in the Britain. Grant's work culminated this month in a short documentary about colourism here in the UK entitled 50 Shades of Melanin. This  30 minute long collection of poetry, interviews, and personal accounts on a variety of topics allows a selection of black British people to speak out against the colourism they face on a daily basis and offer their views and perspectives on why and how it took root in our Black community here in the UK.
