Antoinette Landor offers the following advice to help people heal from skin-tone trauma:
- Acknowledge that colorism exists through individual, institutional, and cultural encounters and that it occurs across races.
- Have difficult conversations about the implications of colorism.
- Identify and define words that might cause skin-tone trauma and be aware of how those words might affect others.
- Believe others when they are open about trauma implications of colorism they are experiencing.
