CosmoGirl.com is currently hosting a film contest. The winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship!
One of the finalists is the amazing Kiri Davis, whose short film “A Girl Like Me” does an incredible job of showing just how deeply we are affected by European beauty ideals. Even young children aren’t immune, as she demonstrates in her black/white doll test. You might have seen me blog about it at Anti-Racist Parent a couple months back.
So head on over, watch her film and vote! How awesome would it be if she got the scholarship?
And fellow POC/race bloggers, maybe you could put a call out on your own blogs to encourage your readers to vote for her too!
