Black Women’s Beauty: A History of Respectability Politics
Join us for “Black Women’s Beauty: A History of Respectability Politics,” an online conversation. In this virtual presentation we will take a look at how standards of beauty in America (which are predominately Eurocentric, often from a male perspective) have affected the self-image, earning potential and social status of Black women in this country.
In this online discussion we will explore the topics of:

This online experience will be facilitated by Tironé Tennessee, The Miss Black Lone Star International Ambassador. The Ambassador exists to give a once in a lifetime opportunity for black women globally to serve as ambassadors of change and to encourage, empower and enlighten, communities, states, and nations.
