Lupita Nyongo Talks About Dark Skin
Lupita Nyongo is the latest talented black beauty to captivate the attention and admiration of audiences worldwide. Following her award-winning performance in 12 Years a Slave, she has used her global acclaim to shed light upon an unspoken truth that most dark skinned black women will have battled with at some point in their lives.
This topic is particularly an issue in Nigeria, with women spending copious amounts of money on bleaching and skin-lightening creams. So this begs the question…
Do you think Lupita’s speech will have an effect on changing the aesthetic perception and social acceptance of dark skinned women as beautiful? Or do you think we should not clear out the bleaching cream stores just yet?
