Race, Gender, and the Politics of Skin Tone Paperback / softback
Race, Gender, and the Politics of Skin Tone tackles the hidden yet painful issue of colorism in the African American and Mexican American communities.

This is the first book to explore this well-known, yet rarely discussed phenomenon.
