This recording was conducted in the African American Cultural Center Gallery in the Witherspoon Student Center on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, at the opening reception of the "Politics of Black Hair" exhibit, curated by Angela Gay, Assistant Director of the NCSU Women’s Center. Kristen Riddick (doctoral candidate in Applied Social and Community Psychology) and Whitney W. McCoy (doctoral candidate in Educational Psychology) discuss their appreciation for the “Politics of Black Hair” exhibit, the importance of African American hair as a personal choice and part of one’s identity, appreciation for Angela Gay and for the NCSU Women’s Center, the power of storytelling, and biases and stereotypes associated with different hair textures.
