“Color-ism” Addresses Discrimination Within the African-American Community

    In Grand Center, “WORK/PLAY” is using the power of language to spark a conversation within the Saint Louis community about colorism – discrimination based on the shade of one’s skin. The insidious problem is not just confined to conflict between ethnic and racial groups, but also within groups. “WORK/PLAY” focuses on colorism within the African-American community with pieces that call back to the roots of the problem and shine a light on how it manifests today. Kevin and Danielle McCoy make up the art team “WORK/PLAY” and discuss their exhibit which is open to the public at Kranzberg Arts Center until September 3, 2018. More information about the exhibit can be found at kranzbergartscenter.org.
