“As Explained to By Black Women” explores the connection Black girls have with their hair and the Eurocentric lens of beauty that has formed their perception of themselves. In most African American communities, possessing “good hair” usually means owning loose curls that sway in the wind, not “nappy,” coarse or wooly hair.

20-5 females of unique ages had been photographed and requested, “What does getting very good hair signify to you?” The deep-rooted culture about hair in just the African American community and what it usually means to folks individually is introduced through the pictures of this exhibition. The responses and stories from these females educate a person to appreciate the uniqueness of some others.
