Actor, Writer-Director and Star of Critically Acclaimed TV Show "Dreaming Whilst Black."
LET'S TALK ABOUT GROWING FREEFORM LOCS, PERCEPTIONS IN JAMAICA VS THE UK, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF SEEING BLACK HAIR IN FILM AND TV.
For many of us in the black community wearing our natural afro hair, especially in western environments comes with a range of hurdles in itself, from being forced to explain yourself, your aesthetic and your culture to those around you who are curious, to having to constantly consider how you will be perceived when you step into new spaces.
Now picture this experience with your hair loc'd, the experience for a large majority often only intensifies. On this episode of Texture Talks we will be digging into Actor and Film Director Adjani Salmons loc journey, learning about the reasons behind his choice to grow freeform locs, how they have shaped his sense of self and what impact his choice of hairstyle has had on his ability to excel creatively and professionally in film and TV.
