101 Black women share their stories of learning to love their natural hair.
They reveal both the depth of the physical and emotional damage done to many women by relaxing their hair and trying to make it look "acceptable", and the incredible resilience, self-love, and acceptance they gained by learning to embrace their hair and free themselves from Eurocentric beauty standards. Accompanied by beautiful and intimate photographs of each woman, the book is an encouraging voice for young Black women.
