In conjunction with Black History Month, this program will delve into the issues regarding complexion, hair texture and racial identity. Authors/journalists Elizabeth Atkins and Desiree Cooper, both showcased in the new book "Other People’s Skin," will be joined by psychologist Dr. Gail Parker and activist Lila Cabbil. The group will offer tips on how to break free of same-race prejudices. "Other People's Skin" is a collection of four novellas focused on the self-hatred caused by intra-racial prejudice and the ongoing obsession with skin tone and hair texture.
