Presentation looks at the concept book These Colours are Bananas, as an example of a startling, unusual, interesting, and even perhaps radical book that uses color in ways that diversify Western color usage norms and standards (not all apples are red; skin comes in many colors, including that of all of its readers). As it detaches meaning from color—rather than attaching other meanings to color—These Colors are Bananas puts into place a cognitive apparatus that establishes a mindset that promises to dismantle Colorism and undermine active ignorance, encouraging what CRT scholar Medina calls a kaleidoscopic (rather than binary or hierarchical) mind.
