I was emailed a trailer for a black hair documentary. Check it out below… And if you’re in the NY area, details are listed below about a screening on Feb 20 in Brooklyn.
“On Monday, February 20 at BAMcinématek in Brooklyn, NY, New Voices in Black Cinema Festival presents a screening of IN OUR HEADS ABOUT OUR HAIR, a new documentary presenting a candid and funny glimpse into the issues surrounding hair and self-esteem, while advocating for the acceptance of all hairstyle choices.
The film includes interviews with Columbia professor Dr. Farah Jasmine Griffin, author/poet Asha Bandele, author/activist Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, media personality Abiola Abrams, veteran journalist Melba Tolliver – the first black network TV news anchor – and more. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with filmmaker Hemamset Angaza, moderated by AOL consumer advisor and spokesperson LaToya Drake.
Join us for what promises to be an enlightening conversation on beauty, health, history, and hair.”
