Description:
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 of the NCSU Women’s Center. Sunshine Spiva (Class of 2021) and Harvey A. Massey (Class of 2019) discuss the importance of taking care of their hair, minimizing harm, and being comfortable with the texture and color of their hair. Both Spiva and Massey talk about pressure from parents to conform and maintain straight or short hairstyles; and the importance of instead choosing healthy ways of styling their hair and presenting themselves.
