Good Hair







For those of you who don't know, Chris Rock has decided to do a doc about black women and hair!  Now as you all now, black women and hair have been an issue every since slavery.  We have fried it, died it, and layed it to the side, weaved it, dreaded it, fro'ed it, cornrowed it, and more.  This doc seems to try and figure out why black women seem to have such a love hate relationship with our hair, which seems to be as hard as answering the "chicken or egg" question.  The trailor is funny, and I hope that like all of the many other magazine articles, books, television series, blogs, websites, and conversations that we have, that this doc brings us closer to a healthy understanding of ourselves and our hair.

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..

Kinda like Madame C.J. Walker in Reverse....a tragic comedy.

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.

Can it be taken back?
