Where is my Hair Care

I am in the beginning stages of investigating black female hair in plays. This identity is my own, so why not start here and then expand…? In my opinion and research, there are blind spots and there always will be, but I hope it will open my awareness and eyes to other hair around me […]

Git on Up
