I am not my hair

I am not my Hair

Akon has a line on Indie Arie's song: "Nappy headed brothers never had no ladies//then I hit the barber shop real quick//had a mini lil' twist and it drove her crazy" makes me smile every time. So true. The funny thing is this is true in American and Ghanaian culture. Indie spoke words of wisdom in her song but it did not occur to me that my little sisters also have perm till I saw Chris Rock's trailer to his upcoming movie Good Hair. I guess the pandemic is closer than we think. Click movie title if you're curious.


  1. Please take a moment to check out my documentary film BLACK HAIR

    It is free at youtube. 6 parts including an update from London, England.

    It explores the Korean Take-over of the Black Beauty Supply and Hair biz..

    The current situation makes it hard to believe that Madame C.J. Walker once ran the whole thing.

    I am not a hater, I am a motivator.

    Plus I am a White guy who stumbled upon this, and felt it was so wrong I had to make a film about it.

    self-funded film, made from the heart.

    Can it be taken back?
