I am not my hair.

Zoila, age 3

Click play to hear my podcast on my experiences with hair, culture and growing up. The podcast details the first and last time I ever had my hair permed. I also talk about the history behind its creation, black hair care's most important historical figure (Madame C.J. Walker), the rise of Dominican hair care and the state of the industry now. I have also included some analysis and final conclusion on the cultural implications of hair styles. The four song selections are:

Butter by A Tribe Called Quest
Superfly by Curtis Mayfield
O Happy Day - Sister Act 2 Soundtrack
I am not my hair - India.Arie

I am not my hair.
