Black women are underrepresented in the media and when they are represented, their image tends to stick to stereotypes. So I think it was important to have a discussion about this issue.

Christelle Kedi is the author of “Beautifying the body in ancient Africa and today” and “Afropolitanism and the Black blogosphere” available at www.booksofafrica.com
