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”.
