Condition: Used-Good (Paperback)
A Beauty Movement for Black Women and Those Who Love Them—and a Key to Stop Racist Sentiments About Black Beauty & Self-Esteem...
A celebration of Black culture, hair, beauty, and identity for Black- and Brown-skinned people, and a gateway to understanding another world for non-blacks, Hairlooms comprehensively educates readers about the African-American experience by uncovering the complex issues surrounding Black women’s hair and beauty.
In Hairlooms, master-storyteller Michele Tapp Roseman transparently shares personal anecdotes that give readers of all ethnic backgrounds a clear understanding of what it means to be Black in America. Her chronicles are complemented by personal interviews with the late, Pulitzer-Prize nominated Dr. Maya Angelou and more than 30 esteemed thought leaders who discuss the social, cultural, and political nuances of Black hair, including general bias toward Black women's hair and overall physical appearance and the self-acceptance challenges Black women face in light of public beauty standards.
