“As Explained to By Black Women” explores the connection Black women of all ages have with their hair and the Eurocentric lens of splendor that has shaped their perception of them selves. In most African American communities, owning “good hair” indicates owning free curls that sway in the wind, not “nappy,” coarse or wooly hair.

20-5 women of distinct ages ended up photographed and questioned, “What does getting fantastic hair necessarily mean to you?” The deep-rooted lifestyle all over hair inside the African American local community and what it signifies to individuals individually is introduced during the visuals of this exhibition. The responses and stories from these ladies educate one to appreciate the uniqueness of some others.
