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?
