This Carnival is intended to focus on beauty and what it means to and about women of color. In particular, I would like to see discussion go beyond a focus on the ways in which women of color can internalize self hatred to the ways in which women and communities of color recognize and celebrate beauty.
Submissions from women and men of color are welcome, focusing on these areas:
What does beauty mean to women of color?
What is the difference between beauty and ethnically based sexual stereotyping? How does stereotyping and white supremacy affect our concepts of beauty, and how can we create change? What kind of responsibility do white women who identify as allies have to analyze and take ownership of their privilege in this area?
How do popular standards of beauty based on generalized whiteness affect our relationships with ourselves, each other, and between different groups of people of color?
Carnival submission deadline is August 5. The Carnival will be posted at yennenga. Please post submissions here.
