The ‘black people and black hair’ debate

I’m listening to the Dotun Adebayo show as I work and the topic is black hair. As you know, it’s a big interest of mine and I’ve discussed this a number of times in this blog. I’m sharing the link with y’all, have a listen and let me know what you think. I’ll follow up with a blog with my impressions.

Black Beauty

Loving this series, brought to my attention by Ms Afropolitan. Awesome to hear from this collection of Black women talking about our wonderful city of London and Black beauty.  So many things resonate with me on a personal level; particularly what Minna has to say on Black beauty in a political context, in contrast to the visual or aesthetic. Check out the London edition but the whole series is worth a look.

What say you, is there such a thing as Black Beauty?
