Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America

Ayana D. Byrd

Publisher: St. Martin's GriffinFormat: Paperback

Two world wars, the Civil Rights movement, and a Jheri curl later, Blacks in America continue to have a complex and convoluted relationship with their hair. From the antebellum practice of shaving the head in an attempt to pass as a “free” person to the 1998 uproar over a White third-grade teacher's reading of the book “Nappy Hair,” the issues surrounding Black hair linger as we enter the twenty-first century.Tying the personal to the political and the popular, “Hair Story” takes a chronological look at the culture behind the ever-changing state of Black hair-from fifteenth century Africa to the present-day United States. “Hair Story” is the book that Black Americans can use as a benchmark for tracing a unique aspect of their history and that people of all races will celebrate as the reference guide for understanding Black hair.
