Kenyan top model, Ajuma Fights Skin Bleaching.
A few weeks ago Africlectic ran a whole series on skin bleaching. You may check out one of our most popular posts from the series here http://africlecticmagazine.tumblr.com/page/8#/post/24907703566
We are happy someone is finally stepping up to be the voice against this phenomenon plaguing our society.
“It’s a pity that people don’t appreciate black beauty,” she said.
These days whenever she has the opportunity, Ajuma speaks out against skin-bleaching, and she is taking it on as her own fight.
Attitudes against colour and the increasing promotion of skin-lightening products are placing a burden on dark-skinned women.
