Lupita talks about black beauty & Dencia's Whitenicious at BWHL

The Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon held yesterday February 28 at The Beverly Hills Hotel in LA...and Oscar nominee Lupita Nyong'o was one of those honored at the event which had Oprah, Tyler Perry, Kerry Washington, Michael Ealy and many other black Hollywood heavyweights in attendance. 

Accepting her award, Lupita gave one of the most powerful speeches about self-acceptance and loving yourself just the way you are. Her message basically is; Black is beautiful and you really don't need Dencia's Whitenicious. Yep, she mentioned Dencia in her speech. Check on it after the cut...


Lupita's acceptance speech at Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon
Thank you Alfre, for such an amazing, amazing introduction and celebration of my work. And thank you very much for inviting me to be a part of such an extraordinary community.
I am surrounded by people who have inspired me, women in particular whose presence on screen made me feel a little more seen and heard and understood. That it is Essence that holds this event celebrating our professional gains of the year is significant, a beauty magazine that recognizes the beauty that we not just possess but also produce.
I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty, black beauty, dark beauty. I received a letter from a girl and I’d like to share just a small part of it with you: “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.”

My heart bled a little when I read those words, I could never have guessed that my first job out of school would be so powerful in and of itself and that it would propel me to be such an image of hope in the same way that the women of The Color Purple were to me.
I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin. And my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter-skinned. The morning would come and I would be so excited about seeing my new skin that I would refuse to look down at myself until I was in front of a mirror because I wanted to see my fair face first. And every day I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I was the day before. I tried to negotiate with God, I told him I would stop stealing sugar cubes at night if he gave me what I wanted, I would listen to my mother’s every word and never lose my school sweater again if he just made me a little lighter. But I guess God was unimpressed with my bargaining chips because He never listened.
And when I was a teenager my self-hate grew worse, as you can imagine happens with adolescence. My mother reminded me often that she thought that I was beautiful but that was no conservation, she’s my mother, of course she’s supposed to think I am beautiful. And then…Alek Wek. A celebrated model, she was dark as night, she was on all of the runways and in every magazine and everyone was talking about how beautiful she was. Even Oprah called her beautiful and that made it a fact. I couldn’t believe that people were embracing a woman who looked so much like me, as beautiful. My complexion had always been an obstacle to overcome and all of a sudden Oprah was telling me it wasn’t. It was perplexing and I wanted to reject it because I had begun to enjoy the seduction of inadequacy. But a flower couldn’t help but bloom inside of me, when I saw Alek I inadvertently saw a reflection of myself that I could not deny.
Now, I had a spring in my step because I felt more seen, more appreciated by the far away gatekeepers of beauty. But around me the preference for my skin prevailed, to the courters that I thought mattered I was still unbeautiful. And my mother again would say to me you can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you and these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.
And what my mother meant when she said you can’t eat beauty was that you can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul. It is what got Patsey in so much trouble with her master, but it is also what has kept her story alive to this day. We remember the beauty of her spirit even after the beauty of her body has faded away.
And so I hope that my presence on your screens and in the magazines may lead you, young girl, on a similar journey. That you will feel the validation of your external beauty but also get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside.
There is no shame in Black beauty.

Did I almost cry reading this piece? Mind yourself Lupita :-) :-)
I have done just a few makeup jobs and I must confess,the dark skin is one you must pay close attention to,its like trying to work on a dark canvas,you just don't splash on colours,you take your time..you are precise,its simply amazing... unlike we fair skins that almost everything goes.
I love love love the fact that you now appreciate your awesome colour,God is a God of variety and variety they say is lifes' spice...so nope darling,God wasn't having none of that skin twisting bla with you. I can imagine standing next to you,and ooh the laugh God'll have while saying"yeah that's me,I did that...black & yellow"LoooL

Most powerful speech i have heard after Luther's "i have a dream" n Lincoln's letter to his Son's teacher.!

This speech should be documented and distributed as pamphlets to every woman in Africa!

God bless you Lupita!
I am totally amazed and captured by that speech!

Anonymous said...

Amen sister

Anonymous said...

Linda you miss the point of this whole speech. Or maybe you don't. The point is NOT that she mentioned Dencia's Whitenicious; you mention that with a hint of pride.

The fact is that this young girl seeing herself through the eyes of Lupita and Oprah has come to realize that black IS beautiful. I mean dark-skinned women are beautiful. In our own originality and authenticity, we ROCK!

THAT my dear is what the speech is all about. You've already given Dencia too much column space on your blog; but I suppose its what your mainly vacuous audience want abi?

Thank you for posting this btw!

Well said. I thank God I belong to the group of women who love the colour of their skin despite what anyone thinks (even though I am not dark nor light either).

Bleaching in the long run damages the skin more than you can possibly imagine. Black is indeed beautiful. Even the whites tan their skin. So what other validation do you need? That man you're bleaching your skin for, is it worth it? Will he keep loving you when you don't have the money to replenish your cream and your skin turns dark? These are lessons to be learned.

Anonymous said...

Deep words from an extra-ordinary woman. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who appreciates herself and who doesn't listen to what others think about her.beauty is divine and its beyond what u see on the outside. bleaching your skin from here to kotangora won't make you beautiful because you lack the charisma( the self-worth) to carry that beauty you have bleached to get. Women should learn to appreciate themselves first so that others wl appreciate their beauty.#shallow minded peeps shld pls kip off# this wonderfuly crafted piece is for the deep thinkers only. Bravo lupita,bravo!

God knows I love and adore Lupita! I think she is a breath of fresh air in Hollywood. Haven said that, I think she should have left Dencia out of the speech. No need giving credence to someone on a downward spiral. Menyioning Dencia's name is only gonna make her more serious. I think it's tacky to put Dencia on the blast like that. Almost as if she's saying "I'm better than you." Even though we all already know that.

I'm light-skinned but I'm a black person(African) of course, if I could darken my skin to be like Lupita's skin, I for no mind o. Her skin tone is so beautiful out of this world. Black is beyond beautiful tho. Whether light-skinned or dark-skinned, if you're a black person you're a black person. Nothing would change that,so appreciate yourself.

Well, why do I evem bother when it is said that "Haters love the internet" for all you haters, she's black,beautiful,famous and rich.

I don't usually comment but seriously ugly is the last word you can use to describe her. Lupita is by far one of the most beautiful women of our time and this has been my opinion from her time on SHUGA. Beauty is not what society expects you to look like, its not the weave or fake lashes you wear. Beauty is within, its is what you exude, if you feel beautiful from within then you will radiate beauty on the outside! Bleaching is becoming a big issue that needs to be tackled, we need to teach our children and youth to love themselves regardless.
To all those that call Lupita ugly, you definately have no clue what that word means and you must be insecure to say that about someone else.
This is my opinion and if you don't like it just put a sock in it cos I don't really care for yours.

So why is it call Whitealicious ??? We all no who she is targetting her marketing ploy is obvious . You've got to be a grade A star Olodo to think this biatch is trying to help people remove black heads. This is a bleaching product. To Whitealicious the skin. That's why she is a monster. She set out to cause controversy and she's going to get it. For a black woman to insinuate that White is some how better than black is a slap on the face of any self respecting african. By the time controversy has finished with her she'll be a untouchable taboo. Backward slave.

Local idiot champion you want to force your way onto international arena to be relevant. The only reason these people are interested in you is becos you offer a bases for research into the mind of a disillusioned BLACK AFRICAN suffering from severe body dysmorphia issues. In fact they should bundle you off to a lab somewhere to dissertation your brain and study your condition. That way they can come up with a vaccine to immunise other bleaching sickness people. That's the only way you can be relevant .Plastic fantastic just get back inside your box and shut up.
