Colourismprejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group.

As you may know I grew up in Italy. I don't look like the typical Italian, but I do identify as Italian. The friends and acquaintances that I was used to have around when I was little were mainly Caucasian. I've had very little episodes of racism and discrimination, little to none. I was lucky. 
 I am a black person, not too dark and not too light. I know that my skin shade can help me out in certain situations were a person darker than me would suffer more injustices.  

Wanting to deepen my understanding about the experiences and struggles of darker black people, I bought a ticket for the screening of the docufilm "No Shade" by Clare Anyiam-Osigwe.
