Thu, 26 Feb 2015 10:00pm

Albinism, a congenital disorder characterised by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes.

A group of people living with the condition of Albinism talk about how a simple lack of pigment has come to define their position in a racially obsessed society.
