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. Quentella Williams, a visitor to the exhibit, discusses her experience straightening her hair for job interviews, and the impact of preconceived notions of professionalism on those seeking employment. Williams encourages others to embrace their beauty, shares her understanding using relaxer and other products, and expands on the treatment she has received in the workplace while having natural hair.
