Yaba Blay

Yaba Blay is a distinguished scholar, author, and cultural activist, widely recognized for her groundbreaking work on Black identity, beauty, and cultural representation. Born on March 13, 1974, she has dedicated her career to exploring the complexities of Blackness and challenging societal norms.


Dr. Blay’s scholarly contributions include extensive research on skin color politics, Black hair, and the intricacies of African and African diasporic cultures. Her work has deepened our understanding of how identity is constructed and perceived, particularly within the African diaspora.


As the author of the acclaimed book “One Drop: Shifting the Lens on Race,” Blay delves into the concept of racial ambiguity and challenges conventional notions of Blackness. She also initiated the “Pretty. Period.” project, celebrating the diverse beauty of Black women.


Blay’s tireless advocacy for the Black community extends to her role as a sought-after speaker, educator, and consultant, addressing issues of race, identity, and representation. Her work inspires critical dialogue and empowers individuals to embrace their authentic selves within a diverse and ever-evolving world.
