LIFE: Politics of Black Hair

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Never easy to leave your blog, but hard to write when the inspiration is gone; however, I am glad to announce that in part, it's back!

I found these videos under the recommended section of my YouTube account and I figured they were worth sharing.  Politics of Black Hair brings up the question: "Why is natural hair revolutionary?"

No doubt that when you think about the Black revolutionary movements of the 1960's the afro is part of that image, so is that to say that we're still in a time where the simple action of embracing oneself is seen as defiant of the higher powers revolutionary? I've enjoyed having this discussion with fellow Afrolatinas and Black women because I think too often we forget just how much progress is still left to be made when it comes to this brainwashed standard of beauty.
