Colorism In America: Janelle Martin

Janelle Martin constructs a visual of her thoughts and ideas of Colorism in America, mainly focusing on the media and how certain individuals are transforming their skin tone. The brown paper bag test was an experiment that existed in the 1900’s and is still being demonstrated today. If you were darker than a paper bag, then you were considered to be a “darkie.” See how Ms. Martin discovers the issue with the changing of the complexion of skin tones in the media and how it is on-going process between video girls and the artist.
