A workshop inspired by Frank Fanon’s book Black skin White mask. The book takes a psychological point of view and looks at the interaction of blacks and whites specifically during colonisation and the mental effects colonisation had on black people. This workshop takes some of his ideas and applies it today and looks at the effects of POC living in a white world today (the west) and how this intersects with their perception of themselves and their worth and their beauty.This workshop will mostly be focalised on the black womans experience and specifically looks at beauty and how it has been distorted to reflect whiteness and oppose blackness. I also want to hear other POC’s experiences so for this reason the workshop will be engaging and included audience participation. Knowledge is power and my aim for this workshop is to enlighten people and empower them to emancipate themselves and understand the magnitude of their worth beauty and power. I will also be collecting stories at the end for members of the audience who are interested in sharing their experiences. These stories will be featured on my magazine FUBU (ForUsByUs).
