Racism Within A Racial Group
Being a member of a minority group in a homogenous state like Vermont is challenging enough. Now add the racism that exists within the African-American community, based on the tone of a person’s skin.
Shanta Evans-Crowley and Shela Linton are the co-creators of an event called “From Ghetto to Granola” that is being held this Saturday in Brattleboro. They discuss the documentary “Dark Girls” and the prevalence of “colorism” that exists within the African-American community globally and in Vermont.
