ZIKORA MEDIA & ARTS is proud to announce the official launch of Decolonizing Beauty, a unique campaign designed to educate the public and celebrate the rich tapestry of indigenous and local beauty customs across Africa.

The campaign will utilize a multi-platform approach to reach a broad audience of English and French speakers around the world.
