The Evolution of (Black) Beauty

1. Reflection Questions

Whose perspective is centered in this video? Why is it important to center this perspective?

Why is it important to understand the history of Black beauty? What is relevant about this history today?

2. Take Action

Find support. Finding and building a community of like-minded people who are having the same lived experiences as yourself is important. We suggest connecting with a group like The Sad Girls Club, a non-profit organization founded to create community and diminish the stigma around mental health. They specifically support women of color and the millennial & GenZ population.

3. Healing + Resilience

Get Together. Whether you’re learning about this for the first time or you’ve already known about this history, it’s important to not learn it all alone. When big questions or emotions come up, talk about what you’re feeling with friends, family, or teachers. It’s important to share new information you learn about yourself and the communities you’re a part of with people you can trust.
