Margaret and daughter Noa
Margaret: I am brown, with a hue of sunshine.
Noa: I’m milk chocolate.
Margaret: I try to downplay colorism in our lineage because we’re all different shadows. But If I attend a dark-skinned woman, I will say,’ Oh, look at how beautiful she is .’ I will point out the glamour in darker skin.
Noa: I ponder my mom’s scalp is beautiful. It’s obviously different than mine, but that’s OK because everyone’s different, everyone’s unique. I’m closer to my dad’s skin tone, he’s darker. But I still like[ my scalp ]. I cherish it.
