A glance into the lives of “colorless” African artists in Tanzania fighting against stigmatization and killings of people with albinism through performing arts. In recent years, Tanzania became infamous for a number of tragic cases of Albino murders which were caused by a false belief that certain body parts of Albinos transmit magical powers. The Albino Revolution Cultural Troupe, which was formed in 2000, organizes musical and theatre performances at conferences, cultural events and campaigns to raise awareness and fight prejudice against Albinos.
