Black Hair Politics

@ Zoom Meeting Session

November 18, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The presence and visibility of Black women’s natural hair have become a topic leading to their conscious decision to vocalize the social experiences related to hair texture, styling, and the aesthetics connected with the politics of skin color. Dr. Latasha Eley, a leading expert on Black hair, hue, and body politics discusses the perceptions of the ways in which hair and hue politics manifest in our society. She will also focus on how Black hair and skin hue impact Black women’s emotional and psychological wellbeing along with contributing factors which place the onus on Black women to educate others regarding their physical attributes and personal appearance.
