WOW Teen Summit: No Shade
Saturday, March 16, 2018
12 PM - 1:30 PM
This year's WOW Teen Summit: No Shade, looks to explore the impact of colorism on a global scale and its influence on local communities. Shade representation in the media, both traditional and modern, has been a challenge throughout history; new platforms are emerging to address these long-standing issues, as women around the world are recognizing and rejecting the bias. Through performances and panel discussions, we will demystify the connection between racism and colorism, while opening up a dialogue of healing that will help us develop tactics to combat it.
