The race and racism debate has almost forever captured our imaginations and continues to occupy a crucial space in public discourse. The colour of the skin, through its subtle and attached symbolism and beliefs, its presence or the lack of it, tells a story of human dynamics that is constructive and/or destructive, depending on the lens used. It has the visual power to influence, pronounce judgements, divide, confer privileges and even influence the right to love, hate, embrace, protect or kill merely based on colour-the colour of the skin. Therefore, Colour Matters? is a book of the shared experiences of many minds as it delves deep into the manifestations of race, its power to influence and how the dynamics play out on our emotions, our biases and, sometimes, our very approach to humanity. Centuries of evolution has still not given us the discerning power to love beyond ethnicity or race. Or are there ways we could supersede these through personal conviction, knowledge and emotional grit? Find out through the stories, experiences and dilemmas of some brave individuals, deconstructing the colour myth to unearth what lies beneath.
