Mr & Ms Albinism
Albinos across Africa face discrimination and in some cases, death. In some countries, witch doctors are willing to pay as much as $75,000 for a full set of albino limbs for use in black magic. To fight stigma and persecution, the Albinism Society of Kenya organised the world’s first albinism beauty contest.
In the week leading up to the competition, we follow three young Kenyan contestants as they step into the spotlight. Will it help them prove that there is beauty beyond their skin?
Virtual reality experiences, comic books, and architectural mapping are all forms of storytelling being used by artists and activists around the world to raise awareness of social problems. From calling out sexual assault in India to documenting war crimes in Gaza, these modes of communication are connecting people to issues across the world.
