  • The Diversity of Girls and Women of Color: Standards of Beauty

    in Culture

    Historically the diversity of girls and women of color has been ignored, insulted, and

    “We live in a society that does not always embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Research has thoroughly documented how negative stereotypes, negative perceptions, and standards of beauty do not include or embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Low values placed on girls and women of color with respect to their voices, emotional needs, abilities, and physical attributes (hair, skin color, body image, and other phenotypes) affect the psychological, emotional, physical and social well-being of girls and women of color.” (Culbreth, 2014)

    Join Dr. Culbreth and guests, Professor Celeste Atkins, Professor LaToya Lee and Dr. Julie Jung-Kim for a thought-provoking discussion on standards of beauty and how girls and women of color are treated disparately in society because of their skin color, race, hair, weight, etc.  Topics will include colorism, racism, weight, body shamming, the foundation of beautiful among other topics and suggestions for moving forward.

    Fighting Infertility for Women of Color

    in Radio

    Did you know that  7.3 million people in the United States are affected by issues of infertility but black women are twice as likely as white women to experience these issues. Still, black women are less likely to seek treatment, according to experts.

    “Popular culture may portray black men and women as hyper-fertile, baby-making machines,” Rev. Stacey says. “But the reality is that many of us are suffering in silence trying to conceive and we don't have anyone to turn to.” Fertility for Colored Girls is unique because it offers a holistic approach to fertility infertility: expert advice of nutritionists, obstetricians and gynecologists address the biological solutions; adoption agencies and family planning experts address alternative options and a prayer/support circle available for women and couples address the issue from a faith perspective.

    Join us this week as we talk with the organization creator, Rev. Dr. Stacy Edwards-Dunn, who not just knows about the subject, but along with her husband have experienced this process in their lives, and are now providing hope for others.  Call in, join the conversation and investigate some solutions you might not knew were available.  That is this Tuesday night at 8:00pm on Healing and Hope for the Heart!.

    in Culture

    Join Dr. Culbreth and Dr. Jung-Kim for a discussion on how girls and women of color are depicted in media, in print, and in their daily lives.


    Women of color as trends?
    The continued insults (conscious/unconscious and intentional/unintentional)
    Defying negative stereotypes
    So much more than a stereotype (morals, ethics, sexuality, etc.)
    When apologies are not enough
    The reality of it all
    Psychic prisons and breaking free
    One size does not fit all
    Deeper thought processes
    On being bigger, better and bolder
    Keep the faith
    Why we must celebrate, embrace, and empower girls and women of color
