I Am Not My Hair

Hosted by Vanessa Echols

In this episode, we're going there, talking about Black women and their hair. We take a deep dive into the cultural history, changing attitudes about natural hair in corporate America and hair discrimination. Yes it exists for both women and men of color. It's hair, but it's not a superficial subject for many Americans of color. If you're familiar with the subject, you'll probably hear your thoughts expressed. If you're not, listen and learn. Guests Tonya Collins, Owner of Natural Tresses Salon & Spa; Erica DeSaussure, organizer of a natural hair Meet Up; and Marina Parries, Founder of the Facebook group Natural Hair Really Rocks join our Podcast Producer Ashley Long and host Vanessa Echols for this discussion.
