Introducing #UnpackWithUs, a GEENIE series that invites conversation on issues impacting our communities. We’ll share a thread of content every Sunday that highlights challenges facing our world and current thinking on ways to move forward. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

🔍 COLORISM: Last week we shared a thread on Beauty & Mental Health including the harmful impacts of euro-centric beauty standards. Today's compilation continues that conversation with a thread on colorism - its history and impact.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: We saw this poignant question on @colorismhealing and encourage you to consider: "What people, media, incidents, environments shaped my thoughts and feelings about complexion?" - Dr. Sarah L. Webb
