      The Colour of Beauty is about race and racism in the model industry. Black History Month just passed (I’m writing this post on March 5th), so what better time to keep the conversation going? Equality isn’t a One-Month-A-Year Problem: it’s something we need to understand and remedy in all seasons. I’m a white male, by the way. This isn’t bias. This is common sense.

      Filmed in 2010, The Colour of Beauty is a 20 minute documentary that packs a punch for a film about pretty little things. The cameras follow Renee Thompson as she tries to make it as a top fashion model in New York City.  Stunning, confident, likeable, smart, she’s got it all. But, she’s black. And in the model world that makes it harder. Agencies don’t often hire a black model. While there are a few at the top (Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks), there are extremely little one notch below.  That’s because black girls who do make it are supposed to be like “white girls dipped in chocolate.”

      What is the colour of beauty? This film got me thinking and I hope it gets you thinking, too. Hey, even if it doesn’t: it’s filled with some gorgeous and brilliant people in the fashion industry: from the shoes to the hairdoos. That rhymes.
