EBONY SPEAK! HAIR: Still the Ultimate Black Girl Divide? Part 1 [WATCH]

Once again, Black women’s hair finds itself at the pinnacle of public debate. Features in Newsweek, calls for audition on MTV’s ‘True Life: ‘I’m Going Natural’, and natural hair Barbies. Now EBONY.com’s style editor Geneva S. Thomas brings together the leading hair and style bloggers to discuss the tangled world of Black women’s hair—natural, straight, and curly in EBONY.com’s inaugural video series SPEAK. This segment features Leola Anifowoshe of Pi Nappa Kappa (natural hair sorority), Jessica Andrews of The Glamazons, Andrea Arterbery of The Glamazoms, Felicia Walker Benson of This That Beauty, Imani Dawson of Tribe Called Curl, and Gia Lowe of Curly Girl Collective. Tune in for Part One of this lively discussion as the ladies get into conversation on the pride, the problems, and the politics of Black women’s hair, and the perceptions of men who date women with both natural and straight tresses.
