In this episode, our new co-host Nontsi discusses the shift in beauty standards in South Africa with Lindelani. In the country being light-skinned was associated with attractiveness and privilege for a long time, but the perception is changing in favour of dark-skinned people. The conversation was Inspired by Ken Mondschein’s “Fatness and Thinness in the Middle Ages”.

Nontsi Mapoma is the creative director of The Listener and The Browser.
