The Politics of Black Hair: The Series
Topic: Is protective styling political or simply a style choice? PURCHASE TICKETS HERE
$10 Advance Tickets | $15 VIP Tickets | Limited $20 Tickets available at the door
For centuries, women of colour have been told that their hair in its natural state isn't good enough.
Do we judge black women by whether or not they straighten their hair? Is a protective style(weave/ wig/ braids/ twists) a political hairstyle? Can you style your hair anyway you want or are you always making a political statement?
Our inaugural event will not only be a celebration of our heritage, but also be an opportunity to begin a dialogue amongst our community. This series is intended to create a space where we can discuss the social, economic, historical, and environmental factors concerning Black Hair. Our hope is that at the end of every event someone will leave feeling empowered and enlightened.
