A project involving publishing an overview of the history and politics of black hair.


Interviews to be compiled with black women and girls of all ages about their attitudes to hair and beauty.


Workshops to be conducted in schools, colleges and youth groups to discuss attitudes and outdated notions of hair and beauty and to improve self-esteem among young black women and girls.

Led by two young black women this project aims to challenge stereotypes and inform young people about the history of black hair in the fight for social justice and as a signifier of black culture.
