One of the many burdens Black women continue to bear on a regular basis is the painful divide of colorism. Throughout history, dating back to slavery, many have faced the harsh reality that the darker your complexion, the worse off your experience with discrimination is like to be.

10-year-old Kheris Rogers knows this struggle all too well. Even at her tender age, she was bullied by her classmates for her darker skin, and ultimately ended up changing schools to escape the teasing.

Recognizing her true beauty, Rogers’s older sister Taylor Pollard, celebrated her baby sister on Twitter posting pics of Rogers with the caption “My sister is only 10, but already royalty,” along with the hashtag #FlexinInHerComplexion.

The powerful words of affirmation and support inspired Roger’s to embrace her Black Girl Magic and even sparked her entrepreneurial spirit with the launch of her own clothing line, Flexin’ in My Complexion.

Rogers recently held a photo shoot entitled ‘Queen of Pearls‘ that would make all Mocha Girls proud, celebrating her beautiful brown skin.
