NEW YORK (AP) — Worokya Duncan is the director of inclusion for a private school in Manhattan, so her embrace of diversity is a no-brainer.

"There was always like an orange line somewhere. I would have to have my hair down so you couldn't see where the foundation color and my actual skin color separated. Why is it so hard? Because people still find it novel that there's beauty found in black and brown bodies in the first place."Enter one doozy of a beauty: Rihanna.
