BOOK: Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America by Ayana D. Byrd & Lori L. Tharps
This was a good book and informative but read slow. I dont know why but it tokk me like 2 or 3 weeks to read it. I kept sitting it down and picking it up. It gave a cool history of African American hair and why sometimes it can be such a painful subject. Iv noticed that there are no two more freguently discussed, or written about physical attributes in African American culture then skin complexion and hair texture. there are soo many books, articles and intimate life stories that center around skin complexion and hair texture in the black community. i hope that one day as a race we will get to a point where we can accept ourself for what we are...what god created us to be.
