The Politics of Black Hair Inaugural Event

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.

Panelists include:
- Toni Daley, Vlogger/ Jewelry Designer/ Artist,
- Natural Neiicey, Vlogger and Natural Hair Enthusiast
- Keina Morgan, Licensed Curly Hair Specialist
- Nicky "Splinta24", Vlogger and Natural Hair Enthusiast
