A glance into lives of “colourless” African artists, Albino Revolution Cultural Troupe 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. Since then many albino support groups have been established to fight prejudice and rejection from society. Albino Revolution Cultural Troupe, which was formed in 2000, organize musical and theatre performances at conferences, cultural events and campaigns against stigmatization and killings of albinos.
