"The author employs a sophisticated theoretical framework to interpret manifestations of colorism past and present and, importantly, puts her findings into dialogue with broader discussions of race and racism. . . . . Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." - Choice
"Through a compelling analysis of how colorism is talked about, made sense of, and even practiced by young, Black women in their everyday lives, this book provides new understandings of the linkages between skin tone and racism and the gendered nature of both. Giving much needed attention to the often neglected women in the 'brown' middle, this work reminds us that colorism is not a dichotomy of light vs. dark, but that those who fall in the middle of the continuum have their own color narratives. Despite the optimistic view that skin color bias died out in the 'black is beautiful' era, Wilder convincingly demonstrates that the color hierarchy continues well past its expiration date." (Verna M. Keith, Professor, Department of Sociology, and Director, Race & Ethnic Studies Institute (RESI), Texas A&M University, College Station, TX.)
