Descripción

Why is Black folk's hair still not accepted today?

It is ridiculed, laughed at and vilified. School aged children are taunted and teased about it. Women in the workplace are pressured to change it with the threat of unemployment. Professional athletes are caricatured and sneered at over it. The pressure to change our hair in order to "fit" in is worldwide. But why?

What is it about Black Folk's Hair that makes it the object of scorn, abuse and insult? And why are some of us going to extremes to alter, disguise or cover it up?

The answers to these and many more questions are found in the pages of this new revised edition of Black Folk's Hair. Offering male and female insights, the authors present a penetrating and updated examination into the hidden truths of Black folk's hair.

Their investigation lays to rest many age-old beliefs about the subject; most of which, are inaccurate, unsuitable and offensive.

They skillfully unravel the secrecy surrounding Black folk's hair uncovering factors from history as the foundation of their inquiry. 

Included are their personal experiences and what they have learned from lectures, seminars and workshops conducted over the years.

The Kenyattas' caring and warm approach to this hush-hush subject is not without controversy. However, when you finish this book, you will never see Black folk's hair the same again!
