Zendaya On Colorism: ‘I Am Hollywood’s Acceptable Version Of A Black Girl

Over the weekend, beauty enthusiasts attended BeautyCon Festival in New York City to celebrate beauty through self-expression and engaging panel discussions, meet-ups, and big brand activations. This year, Zendaya sat down for a conversation with Bozama Saint John, the chief brand officer at Uber, and discussed beauty standards and the lack of diversity in Hollywood.
