Brown Like Me

Published on Jul 13, 2016

While colourism is not a synonym of racism, it is a sister of it, and it is just as persistent and damaging to communities and a person's self-worth. Kamal Al-Solaylee is an associate professor at the School of Journalism at Ryerson University, and his new book, "Brown: What Being Brown Means in the World Today (To Everyone)," examines the historical, social, economic and political implications of being a brown-skinned person. Al-Solaylee joins The Agenda to discuss brown identity and colourism.
