Colorism has been in the news again thanks in part to the controversy over the dearth of Afro-Latino actors featured in Lin Manuel Miranda’s latest film In the Heights. This week, hosts Jarrett Hill and Tre’vell Anderson are joined by an actual resident of The Heights, returning guest Jarrett Lucas, who is the Executive Director of The Stonewall Foundation. This is the first part of a two-part conversation on colorism.

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
