Summary:
Focusing on issues of value, identity, privilege, and shame, this documentary features personal narratives and sociological discussion on how hair and other personal features are used as a means for stereotyping in the African-American community. The program highlights issues of pressure, conformity, and acceptance; looks at beauty as a social construction; and examines how these issues have different impacts on men and women of different ages.
