Dark is Beautiful

Posted by on Aug 22, 2013 in Blog | No Comments

I am reminded of a passage from the BibleGaye McDonald where King Solomon’s bride commiserates about her dark skin…

I am so black; but [you are] lovely and pleasant [the ladies assured her]. O you daughters of Jerusalem, [I am as dark] as the tents of [the Bedouin tribe] Kedar, like the [beautiful] curtains of Solomon!

Song of Solomon 1:5

 

But while this historic character was assured by her ladies in waiting, many women around the world feel self-esteem issues because of their skin tone. And, as you may have already guessed, a social media movement was born.
