Examining the Relationship Between Skin Color and Africana Studies




prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically people of the same ethnic group




“…Some view our sable race with a scornful eye,

Their colour is a diabolic die

Remember, Christians, Negros black as Cain,

May be refin’d and join th’ angelic train” (143)


Phyllis Wheatley

“ it’s a peculiar sensation, this double consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others and measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One never feels his two-ness an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.” (687)


W.E.B. Dubois
