#BNFroFriday: Black Women’s Hair Throughout American History



In this video by BuzzFeed, we get to see the transition of a black woman’s hair throughout American history.

From the shores of Africa and representation of hair by the Yoruba culture to the times of emancipation when black people faced economic and social pressure to assimilate into the white culture, causing them to alter the texture of their hair with chemicals.

The story has come full circle now and today, black women embrace their hair in whatever way makes them feel beautiful in their own way. #BlackGirlMagic!
