I saw Chris Rock speaking about it on Oprah and he said that before the Obamas, the Jacksons were America's first family for blacks - whatever the bros were doing, Chris would try. funeeeeeeeeeethis movie will be righteous and outta sighteous
We were watching Tyra a few months back, the subject was "skin bleaching" and Tyra and all her audience members were berating various female guests who bleached their skin and their kids skin, telling them it was a form of self hatred, etc. None of them saw the irony in the fact that Tyra and every women in the audience who spoke all had their hair processed.Bring back the natural I say.....
PLEASE…Don't get me started!!! I have been talking to others about this documentary. The topic is hitting all sorts of nerves in The Community (as it should). I can't wait to see this and hope it plays here in Athens.
I would love to see this movie. It looks so cool. I've loved talking to all my black friends over the years about their hair.
Oh, this is a must-see! My college roommate spent 4-5 HOURS on Sunday afternoons working on her hair! First she'd wash, then blow-dry, apply relaxer/straightener,finally she'd set with rollers and then sat under a bonnet-style dryer. There was NO way my girl would go nappy-headed! Poor darling!I wish it would play here in Wilmywood!
Having spend most of my childhood Saturdays in my aunt's beauty salons watching (white) women get their hair set, sprayed, teased into towers of perfection, I am of the opinion that white women's hair peaked in the early 70s and fell with the advent of the blow dryer. One of the reasons why I loved to watch "Tears, Shears, and Beauty" was my fascination with black women and their hair. Those 'dos are incredible (see my blog for photos.)Someday I will dig out that photo of my dad with his 'fro ... for my documentary "When Whites go Black."
