About this event

Do you love your natural hair? Some of the world’s most inspiring black women tell us about their attitudes to, and struggles with, their crowning glory. Kinky, wavy, straight or curly, this book will help you celebrate your natural beauty, however you choose to style your hair. With an overview of the politics and history of black hair, the book explores how black hairstyles have played a part in the fight for social justice and the promotion of black culture while inspiring us to challenge outdated notions of beauty, gender and sexuality for young women and girls everywhere. The power is in our hair. And we’ve come to tell the world what ours can do!

Join authors Saskia Calliste and Zainab Raghdo as well as contributor Stella Oni to discuss all things Hair!
