Women of Colour and Beauty Carnival

August 14th, 2008     by Cate Simpson     Comments

You’d be forgiven for not knowing what a blogging carnival is, but lately they’ve been catching on in popularity. Basically, one person introduces a theme and calls for others to blog about it and send them the links, and then they collect them all together into a single post.

Angry Black Woman held a Carnival of Allies back in April, and this week the organizer of yennenga - a LiveJournal community for women of colour - posted the results of a Women of Colour and Beauty Carnival she held after a conversation with a Native friend about cultural values of beauty and attractiveness.

Racialicious has exerpts from some of the best posts.
