Pantone SkinTone and the Humanae Project

Halvsies come in all sizes. The variety is pretty endless. Let’s say there are 194 countries in the world, that’s at least as many combinations before you get to multi-cultural mixes which are closer to the truth.

Two projects that have converged to speak to the variety of human beings, their mixes, and the spectrum of skin tones in the world are the Pantone Skintone project, and artist Angélica Dass’ Humanae photography project.

Pantone SkinTone Guide is a collection of 110 colors classified as the various tones of skin.

We challenge the myth of race

Intolerance related to race, religion, and color negatively affects self-esteem, personal achievement, and community relationships–particularly among young persons. Within the classroom, intolerance becomes discrimination, removing one’s ability to see value in oneself and the others: it muddies the beauty of diversity that marks authentic education. Humanae empowers global educators to stand against discrimination by creating playful spaces for students and the communities in which they reside to discuss such complex, vital issues.
