      Who's Lovin' Who?


      That's the headline on the February, 2008
      edition of Ebony Magazine that features
      Elizabeth Atkins' provocative insights
      on whether
      light-skinned "blacks" are
      happier, more successful and more
      accepted than their darker-skinned
      brothers and sisters.

      Who gets more love?

      Turn to page 164 to find out!

          Please join ELIZABETH ATKINS for a

          conversation that could change your life
           

          OTHER PEOPLE'S SKIN:

          A PANEL DISCUSSION

           
          ELIZABETH

          will moderate

          the panel with

          DESIREE COOPER
          Co-Author of the new book, Other People's Skin:
          Four Novellas,
          from Simon & Schuster.
          Desiree is also a Detroit Free
          Press columnist and an anchor
          on Weekend America on
          National Public Radio.
          Desiree speaks about how her
          provocative story, "New Birth,"
          showcases a woman who
          triumphs over the tragedy
          of racism within the race.

          DR. GAIL PARKER
           
          A psychologist and president of
          Parker Counseling Services,
          Dr. Parker has shared
          her expertise on the
          Oprah Winfrey Show.
          Based in Metro Detroit,
          she counsels individuals
          and couples.
          She offers tips on how women can boost self-esteem in relation to skin color
          and racial identity.

          LILA CABBIL
           
          President Emeritus of the
          Rosa and Raymond Parks
          Institute for Self-Development, Ms. Cabbil is a long-time
          race relations activist
          in Metro Detroit.
          With poignant eloquence,
          she shares insights on how
          we can conquer colorism
          in our community.
           


          You heard about the party
          that was free for light-skinned
          women only (It was cancelled).

          Then a magazine editor called afros
          and dredlocks a Glamour "don't."

          And you probably hear and see the light skin/dark skin, good hair/bad hair drama play out every day.

          It makes millions of women feel hate.
          From within.
          From the world.
          And toward each other.

          Now it's time to talk about how to
          heal and love ourselves - as we are.

          OTHER PEOPLE'S SKIN:
          A PANEL DISCUSSION
          helps us do just that.

          By talking.

          And by providing tips on how to break
          free of the paralyzing hate of the good
          hair/bad hair, light skin/dark skin drama.

          Let's stop the hate, start
          some love, and celebrate!

          Do that with Other People's Skin: Four Novellas,
          co-authored by Elizabeth Atkins, Desiree Cooper,
          Tracy Price-Thompson and TaRessa Stovall
