Using Literacy to Foster Healing and Stop the Generational Cycle of Colorism.
I created the website Colorism Healing in 2013 with the mission to raise critical awareness, promote healing, and find solutions to colorism through creative and critical work. Since then, I have hosted international writing contests, published books, and provided information and resources on the subject.
The International Colorism Healing Writing Contest has attracted close to 1,000 submissions from around the world. Click to learn more about Winners and Editor's Picks.
Professor Webb’s workshop incited crucial conversations about how our lives are saturated by colorism and the intersecting issues of race, class, and gender. Professor Webb offers helpful frameworks that are grounded in research, and she uses the arts to humanize the conversation. I have rarely been in a professional conversation about such difficult subject matter that felt so honest and transforming for everyone involved.
