Let's Talk About A New Black Hair Documentary
On Episode 024 of Texture Talks, I will be speaking to Juniper Johnson, a West African American artist based in Florida and the creator of an exciting project called "Heavy is the Head" that aims to honour and showcase the rich history of Black hair, celebrating diversity and self-expression within the Black community.
Inspired by Afro Sheen commercials, Jet and Ebony magazines, "Heavy is the Head" will feature a curated collection of photographs, stories, and historical accounts. It's vital for the Black community to see themselves represented and understood. Additionally, they will also highlight the Crown Act, addressing the discrimination against Black hair across different states, and I wanted the full early scoop before it's official release at the beginning of October!
