The Tragic History Of The Brown Paper Bag Test, The Discriminatory Practice Used To Exclude Dark-Skinned Black People
In 20th-century america, the brown paper bag test was used to deny some black people access to positions of privilege if their skin tone was darker than a paper bag..
Afro American Newspapers/Gado/Getty Images Members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority meet with singer Marian Anderson in 1953. The sorority reportedly used the brown paper bag test to admit members.
The brown paper bag test was a form of discrimination used to exclude dark-skinned Black people by comparing their skin tone to the color of a brown paper bag. Those who were lighter than the bag were allowed into the club. Those whose skin failed the test were rejected.
There are stories of Black fraternities and sororities, professional organizations, and even churches using the test to determine membership. The gangster owner of Harlem’s Cotton Club, which catered to white audiences, was said to use the test to restrict who could join his dance troupe, sometimes known as the Copper Colored Gals.
In New Orleans, where generations of racial mixing between white Europeans, enslaved Black people, and Indigenous Americans had created a unique caste structure based on skin tone, there is still reputable lore surrounding “bag parties.”
And while the ideas behind the brown paper bag test originated in the earliest days of slavery, it led to a long discriminatory tradition of colorism that explicitly privileged light skin over dark well into the 20th century.
What Is The Brown Paper Bag Test?
In 1996, the Harvard historian Henry Louis Gates Jr. wrote that, not long after he arrived at Yale as an undergraduate, “some of the brothers who came from private schools in New Orleans held a ‘bag party.'”
It was 1969, the year of Martin Luther King’s assassination. Gates, born in 1950 in West Virginia, had never heard of a bag party.
“As a classmate explained it to me, a bag party was a New Orleans custom wherein a brown paper bag was stuck on the door and anyone darker than it was denied entrance. That was one cultural legacy that would be put to rest in a hurry.”
Wikimedia Commons A 1902 photograph of George Herriman, the cartoonist behind Krazy Kat. Herriman, born to mixed-race Creole parents in New Orleans, passed as white.
Gates’s experience of learning about the brown paper bag test was not uncommon. Knowledge spread by word of mouth. It became almost folkloric in its existence as a way to reinforce colorism.
When scholar Audrey Elisa Kerr investigated the tradition in the early 2000s, she uncovered dozens of tales of Louisiana paper bag tests.
A Creole barbershop owner told Kerr that paper bag parties were common in the past. The parties might take several forms. In the most explicit, the hosts would nail a brown paper bag at the door. Anyone darker than the bag could not enter.
The test traces its roots back to the days of slavery. Under the “one drop” rule, anyone with a single drop of African blood was considered Black. In practice, Louisiana’s Black population came in all shades — and skin color often determined social status.
Louisiana divided society into three castes in the antebellum period. The free, white population held nearly all the power. The enslaved Black population was shut out from power. But a third group existed between the two: free biracial people.
Social elites never considered mixed-race Americans their equals. Yet this third group held much greater social status than enslaved Black people. In fact, 80 percent of Louisiana’s free Black population fell into this category.
The division drove a wedge between mixed, lighter-skinned free Black people and darker-skinned, enslaved Black people, according to Kerr.
Light-skinned Black women became the mistresses of wealthy white New Orleanians. While laws still banned marriage across racial lines, society treated light-skinned Black people better than those with dark skin.
The brown paper bag test became a legacy of that color division.
The Brown Paper Bag Test During Jim Crow
The brown paper bag test stands out as an example of discrimination within a racial group. However, the history of the paper bag test traces back to white supremacy and slavery.

Of course, the end of slavery did not end race-based divisions. During the Jim Crow era, white supremacist ideologies continued to push the notion that lighter skin was better. And some Black Americans absorbed and internalized that idea.
In the 1920s, the Black blues singer Big Bill Broonzy explained the Jim Crow system in verse:
If you’re white, you’re alright If you’re brown, you can stick around If you’re black, get back
In a society governed by skin color, dark skin was demonized — even by Black Americans.
By the middle of the 20th century, stories about the brown paper bag test popped up at Black sororities, Black universities, and Black social clubs. Some establishments reportedly refused entry to dark-skinned people.
One of the most notable cases was in the Howard University sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha and the fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha, which were said to deny acceptance to students who didn’t pass the test. In response, dark-skinned students were said to have founded their own Greek organizations like the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity and the Delta Sigma Theta sorority.
“Think about it. You have probably come across a situation in which someone tells a light-skinned Delta that she looks like she could be an AKA and vice versa,” wrote the Black Greek life site Watch The Yard . “While they may not have explicitly stated that this is because she has light-skin, you know exactly what they mean.”
When Audrey Elisa Kerr investigated the brown paper bag test, she discovered many stories claiming the tradition was a thing of the past. But others remember the test in more recent decades.
In the 1980s, lawyer Lawrence Otis Graham attended a party hosted by a Black women’s group at Wellesley College. The party brought together Black college students from Boston’s most elite colleges. Graham remembers women with “straight — or straightened — hair” checking guests at the door to turn away any who “failed the ubiquitous ‘brown paper bag and ruler test.'”
The ruler test, too, was a form of discrimination, but it was explicitly based on gender and judged whether a woman’s hair was as straight as a ruler. According to Graham, when not enough men passed the brown paper bag test, the hosts eventually allowed some “darker skinned guys” inside.
The Continued Reinforcement Of Colorism
The brown paper bag test wasn’t the only race-based test that fractured Black America. A retired Philadelphian recalled a test at the local Episcopal church.
“We used to have this joke on the street corner that when you went through the door in the Episcopal church they had a comb hanging in the doorway, and if the comb didn’t go through your hair you weren’t welcomed,” he told Audrey Elisa Kerr in her 2006 book, The Paper Bag Principle .
Like the brown paper bag test, the comb separated those with “desirable” features — “good hair” — from those without.
In both the brown paper bag test and the comb test, Black Americans privileged people with European features.
Smithsonian Institute A 1930 advertisement for a skin-lightening cream that promised to make women more attractive.
The irony of the brown paper bag test was that it upheld white supremacy. As David Pilgrim, curator at the Jim Crow Museum, explains , “A fraction of the group decided to practice their own brand of bigotry — deny entry (friendship) to any Black person darker than a standard brown paper bag.”
The brown paper bag was chosen because it was considered the midway point between Black and white.
“Why exclude their darker brothers?” Pilgrim asks. “Because they, meaning those with lighter skin, not only had a fetish for white skin and Eurocentric features, but they had internalized the racist notion that light skin is a marker of intellectual, cultural, social, and personal superiority over and above darker people.”
While Black Americans faced terrible treatment from white people, color also created hierarchies within the Black community.
In the infamous doll test , researchers in the 1940s offered white and Black dolls to Black children between 3-7 years old. Most chose the white doll. Even at a young age, Black children had absorbed the message that light skin was better.
That same generation of children, raised on the idea that lighter skin was superior, instituted brown paper bag tests at sororities, social gatherings, and other events. The proliferation of bag parties shows how deeply Black Americans internalized racist ideas.
The brown paper bag test excluded dark-skinned people from social events. Next, read about the racist legacy of sundown towns . Then, see these stunning photos of Black Victorian women .

Brown Bag Assignment Paper
Show More For my Brown Bag Assignment my participant, JR, was found within my family. I was aware JR took daily medications due to his recent heart bypass surgery in June 2015 and met with him. JR is 62 years old and takes seven medications daily. The medications he takes are Metoprolol, Valsartan, Amiodarone, Atorvastatin, Clopidogrel, Metformin and Rivaroxaban. He takes the same three medications for three years now and the same four medications since his bypass surgery. Today, he chooses to have a lively life with an excellent diet and exercise habits. Medication Evaluation My participant, JR had heart bypass surgery, exactly 4 bypasses, on June 1, 2015, due to 90% of his coronary arteries being blocked. This eight-hour surgery was a huge reality …show more content… He knows he cannot drink grapefruit juice and the medication that needs to be taken with food. He also takes every medication with a full glass of water. He is also familiar of the side effects of each medication. I noticed JR keeps all of his medication in a weekly pill box and keeps it all in a cabinet. This is a extremely helpful since he cannot get his medication confused or take a wrong pill at the wrong time and is stored in a safe place. I mentioned what to do if he forgets a dose and he said that he never forgets to take his medication and his wife always reminds him. However, he did not know all the information needed to know if he does forget. He was also unaware that he has to be careful with avoiding salt substitutes containing potassium or food containing high levels of potassium or sodium when taking Valsartan. A major drug to drug interaction JR was unfamiliar with was Clopidogrel and Rivaroxaban. I informed my participant of the increased risks of taking the two medications together and to seek immediate help if he experiences any of the effects. I specified that his doctor must be monitoring all his drugs and side effects. I also mentioned how important it is that he can not stop using any of his medications without speaking to his doctor first. (Drug

Reading Assignment Analysis
Mrs. Stover and Mr. Brown would always send me home with reading assignments. I remember the long dreadful nights struggling to read a different Dr. Seuss book every night. My mother is the one who taught me how to read. If it was not for her long hours of dedication to help me succeed, I would not be as proficient with reading as I am today. My mother is the kind of person who will push you to your full potential. I revived reading assignment daily. With each reading assignment I knew it would be…

All About Me Bag Activity Ideas and Instructions
What is an "All About Me Bag?"
An "All About Me Bag" is basically a structured, back to school show and tell.
Give students an empty lunch sack with instructions (find free printable instructions below). The instructions tell students that their very first homework assignment is to decorate the bag with words and pictures that describe them or are important to them. Then, they choose 3 school appropriate objects that will fit in the bag to share with the class.
When students bring their bags back the next day, they will share their bag with the class.
All About Me Bag - Free Printable Instructions
Use these free All About Me Bag Labels to give as instructions to your 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students.
These instruction tell students to bring 3 objects that:
- Fit in the bag (so that this activity doesn't take up too much space in your classroom)
- Are school appropriate
- Are not very valuable (to prevent problems with parents if things get lost or stolen)
- Reflect something that is important to the student or their life
Use these free All About Me Bag Labels in your own upper elementary classroom.
All About Me Bag Example
Before sending your students home with their "All About Me Bags," model sharing your own bag with them so they know what is expected. Bonus: It's a chance for them to get to know you a little better as well.
As my "All About Me Bag" example, I would usually include:
- a picture of my husband and me hiking
- a dog treat
These 3 items gave me a chance to talk about my husband, my dogs, and some of my favorite hobbies - hiking and reading. These 3 items summed up some of the most important parts of my life that I wanted to share with students.
I have found that by providing these 3 examples was enough to get my students' creative juices flowing, but if they need more ideas you could suggest things like:

The Benefits of Using This as an Ice Breaker
Building a positive classroom community is one of the most important things you will do at the beginning of the school year. There are a lot of ways to do this:
- back to school activities and ice breakers
- team building discussion questions
- other All About Me ideas
- team building activities
However, the All About Me Bag activity has an advantage that most other back to school activities don't. It provides students with a low stress opportunity to get in front of the entire class and speak.
It is important for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students to feel comfortable speaking in front of the class. Yet this is terrifying for a lot of students. An activity like this can help students feel more comfortable, because there are no wrong answers - they will be talking about themselves.
You might also like these other back to school activities and ideas.

The "Brown Bag Review" of medicines is a common practice that involves encouraging patients to bring all of their medicines and supplements to their visit and reviewing them. The goal is to determine what medicines patients are taking and how they are taking them. The process can identify medicine errors and misunderstandings that would otherwise be overlooked. Although many practices conduct medicine reconciliation using information in the medical record or as reported by the patient, a Brown Bag Medicine Review is more thorough.
Identify medicines patients should bring.
- All prescription medicines.
- All over-the-counter medicines.
- All vitamins, supplements, and herbal medicines.
- All topicals, liquids, injectibles, and inhalants, as well as pills.
Remind patients to bring medicines.
- Discuss medicine review during a visit and emphasize the potential benefits (e.g., possible reduction in number of medicines).
- Write a note on the appointment card.
- Mention it during the appointment reminder call.
- Hang posters in the exam room and waiting room.
- Provide a carrier, such as a bag with your practice's name and "Bring All Your Medicines" printed on it.
Prepare for the review.
- A nurse or medical assistant can set out all the medicines at the beginning of a visit.
- The staff member should thank patients for bringing in their medicines.
Perform the review.
- What do you take this medicine for?
- When do you take this medicine?
- Can you show me how much you take each time?
- Throughout the process, use the word "medicine," rather than "medication." Medicine is a common word and is more likely to be understood by patients.
Clarify medicine instructions.
- When you find that patients are taking medicines incorrectly, try to find out why. Clarify what they should be doing. Use common, everyday words and provide precise instructions ("Take 1 pill in the morning and 1 pill at bedtime.") Go to Tool 4: Communicate Clearly for tips for communicating in a way that will be easy to understand.
- Use the Teach-Back Method to confirm patient understanding. Go to Tool 5: Use the Teach-Back Method for guidance.
Document the review.
- Update the medicines in the patient's medical record.
- Document medicine inconsistencies and what the patient has been directed to take.
- Note in the record when medicine reviews are done.
Provide patients with updated medicine lists.
- Patients should leave the visit with an updated list that describes what medicines they should take and how.
- Go to Tool 16: Help Patients Remember How and When to Take Their Medicine for examples of easy-to-understand medicine lists and ways to help patients remember how to take their medicines correctly.
Track Your Progress
At checkout, ask patients if they brought in all their medicines for a Brown Bag Medicine Review. If they have, ask if the review was performed. Calculate the percentage of all patients who brought in their medicine over the past month and the percentage of those patients whose medicines were reviewed.
Monitor patient medical records on a routine schedule (e.g., monthly) to calculate the percentage of patients seen during that period who had a Brown Bag Medicine Review.
Have clinicians complete the Medicine Review Form for a sample of patients 2 months, 6 months, and 12 months after implementing this tool. Using data from the form, calculate the percentage of patients that brought all their medicines and the percentage of reviews that identified a problem. See if the numbers change over time.
If you field questions from the Health Literacy Patient Survey , calculate what percentage of patients responded "Always" to question #12.
The American Medical Association (AMA) manual " Health Literacy and Patient Safety: Help Patients Understand " offers information on medicine reviews. Once you link to the Web site, look for the Manual for Clinicians. Access to the manual is free, once you have created an account.
The Brown Bag Tool Kit , from the Ohio Patient Safety Institute, contains information for practices related to planning a Brown Bag event with pharmacies.

An all about me bag is a fun way to help students and teachers get to know each other. Kids basically fill a bag with things that show their likes and personality, then share the contents. Check out me bag assignments and me bag examples to see how you can incorporate this creative activity into your lesson plans .
Fun Ways to Introduce About Me Bags
You can use an all about me bag in middle school and high school; they’re not just for elementary grades! Your me in a bag strategy can include giving the activity as a homework assignment or a more creative presentation. For younger kids, make sure you send home an all about me bag letter to parents so they can help complete the activity.
Book Character Bags
Make about me bags for different book characters you’ve met in your lessons. Let kids explore the bags and guess which character goes with each bag. Use this as a storytelling activity since kids will see how characters tell a story and how they can tell a story about who they are.
Guess Who I Am Game
Make your own about me bag and leave it on a chair in the front of the classroom. Write instructions on the board for kids to examine the bag and its contents, then make inferences about what each item says about you. Kids get points for things like correct guesses, creative guesses, and any other category you want. The points can be used to earn prizes and incentives.
Tell Me About Myself Activity
Provide a variety of bags and have each student fill one with items from around the room they think represent who you are. Each student can share their bag with the class to see how everyone looks at you in their own way or notices different things about you.
Don’t Open the Bag Challenge
An about me bag can include both personal items and items the student feels comfortable sharing. Leave your about me bag in plain view in the classroom for a day or more and challenge students not to peek inside.
If they succeed, share the contents with them. If they don’t, take the bag away without revealing what’s inside. This helps kids understand that while they’ll be sharing personal information, they only have to share what they want to, and others should respect that privacy.

Keep a bag somewhere everyone can access it. Ask students to pay attention throughout the day for you to mention the words “all about me.” Any item or topic that follows those words is a scavenger hunt clue.

These days, when you hear the question, “Paper or plastic?” the answer is an almost instinctive “Paper!” We all know that plastic is terrible for the environment, and that plastic bags, in particular, are clogging up our oceans, choking our wildlife and generally wreaking havoc on the world.
Because of this, and because the paper bag industry has positioned itself as the solution for decades now, we rarely stop to ask a critical question: Is paper actually that much better?
The truth is, no, it’s not. Paper does a lot of damage to the Earth as well, and every time we unthinkingly grab a few bags at the checkout stand, we contribute to that damage. It’s time to learn the truth about paper bags, so we can start making better choices today.
Because the answer to “Paper or plastic?” should actually be “Neither … I brought my own.”
Not That Much Better Than Plastic
Paper bags just seem friendlier to the environment, right? They don’t have that slick petroleum look like plastic bags do; they’re a cheerful kraft color; they fold up neatly to stack in your cupboard for next time (assuming they didn’t get destroyed this time).
But research, such as this report , makes clear that plastic really doesn’t have much on plastic. To wit:
- It doesn’t break down any faster than plastic in landfills. That’s because, while paper breaks down much faster under ideal conditions, landfills are not ideal conditions. The lack of light, air and oxygen means pretty much nothing decomposes, so paper and plastic are destined to spend equal amounts of time there.
- Paper bags are bigger than plastic, which means they take up more space in landfills. They’re recycled at a higher rate, which mitigates that fact, but that still means they still have a greater per-bag impact on landfills.
- It takes four times as much energy to manufacture a paper bag, as compared to plastic, and the raw materials have to come from trees, a natural resource that is otherwise carbon-fixing. Making paper bags not only adds waste to the world, it kills one of our greatest tools for fighting pollution.
- Paper bags generate 70 more air pollutants than plastic.
- They generate 50 times more water pollutants than plastic.
- It takes 91 percent less energy to recycle a plastic bag than it does a paper bag.
- Paper bags are very thick, so shipping them costs more fuel per bag.
This report is admittedly biased toward plastic (and reusable bags), but if this is starting to sound like a vote for plastic bags, think again. Plastic leaches chemicals into our oceans and waterways, breaks into small pieces and accumulates in the stomachs of baby birds, strangles fish and collects into great seafaring clumps that become islands and continent-sized garbage patches . The point isn’t that plastic is good; it’s that our unwavering assumption that paper’s okay is wrong.
Here are a few more reasons not to trust that paper bag’s cheerful, eco-friendly-looking façade.
Even More Disposable?
While plastic is certainly no slice of cherry pie, it has one thing going for it that paper does not: relative strength. Paper falls apart really easily. All you need to do is put one jug of milk in a paper bag and experience The Great Bottom Falling Out Phenomenon to know that paper bags aren’t a cure-all.
In some ways, this makes paper more disposable than plastic. And while plastic can be washed if it gets yucky, paper is done for as soon as food or oil soak into its fibers. Once that happens, you can’t even recycle it. Considering the fact that “It’s recyclable!” is often cited as the main argument in favor of paper, that’s pretty bad news.
If you must choose paper, at least try to keep wet items out of it and don’t overfill it. That way it won’t tear, and hopefully you can use it again. Even when you can, though, paper only stands up to a use or three. Reusable grocery bags, on the other hand, keep trucking long afterward, good for hundreds or even thousands of uses.
A Time-Intensive Recycling Process
One thing paper bags are consistently lauded for is the higher rate at which they’re recycled. Because most municipalities accept paper bags curbside, it’s easy to forget about paper bags as soon as they’re hauled away by the recycling truck. But paper does not leave your curb and head straight to the store as shiny new paper. Far from it.
Allow us to summarize: Paper is first collected, sorted by machine and by hand, sorted some more to pick out all non-paper items, washed, turned to sludge, purified, poured, flattened, dried, colored or bleached, cut, packaged and sent out into the world. Each step of the way involves huge machines and intensive energy use, which rely on fossil fuels. Even if the results are good – we’ve kept a paper bag out of landfill – we have nevertheless added a huge number of chemicals to the world’s air and water.
If you’ve been relying heavily on the psychological comfort provided by paper bag recycling, think again. It’s time to stop assuming paper bags are “fine” and opt for a better option.
The Beautifully Branded Better Option
Obviously, reusable bags are better than paper bags. Yes, you can make the argument that any bag relies on manufacturing processes that use world resources and add chemicals and waste to the environment. No one’s arguing that. This is true when anyone makes anything , though, so we can’t very well allow ourselves to be crippled by that fact. Plus, people are always going to need bags in which to bring home their groceries, pack for trips or carry charitable donations to the nearest drop-off center.
The question shouldn’t be whether or not we use bags, because that’s silly. Rather, the question should be: “If we’re going to use the world’s resources, what’s the absolute best product we can make with those resources?”
When it comes to bags, the answer is obvious: Custom imprinted reusable bags are the ticket. Whether that means reusable wine bags, reusable insulated bags or reusable canvas totes, reusable laminated bags, recycled plastic bags, custom reusable bags and more. Our carrying devices are good for hundreds of uses. Instead of trashing or recycling bag after bag on the weekly grind of bringing home the groceries, patrons can now tuck everything into bags that they know can be refolded, washed, and used again and again.
Wouldn’t you like to be the one that brings such convenience to your clients and customers? When you work with Reuse This Bag, you can. We offer a huge range of options when it comes to type, color, logo design and more. We’ll help you customize your bag completely, so it doesn’t look like anyone else’s, then ship your new bags right to your front door.
