The Politics of Black Hair Exhibit

The Politics of Black Hair Exhibit

The NC State Women’s Center has curated #PBH to center, celebrate and reclaim the texture, versatility and beauty of Black hair. We invited Black women, men, trans, gender non-binary and nonconforming folx at NC State to take part in this celebration by participating in a photo shoot where Black hair took center stage. The photo shoot displayed the authenticity and liberation that comes with embracing the inherent freedom of Black hair. This exhibit also addresses the revolutionary politics that comes with Black self-acceptance within cultures that seek to oppress as well as stifle the imagination, creativity and energy of Black identified folx. This exhibit is comprised of the counternarratives of every human represented and is a representation of their own sites of resistance and liberation. As expressed by the late Audre Lorde, “some see locks and they see revolution.”
