dissecting 'good hair'- the film
as the conversation on hair is continuous for us at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!'; this week, we wanted to take the time to focus on the concept of 'good hair'- namely, the film. amidst all of the positive reviews for the film, we wanted to see for ourselves how effective the message was in discussing the socio-political issues and connections regarding the so-called 'black hair industry'.
overall, 'good hair' is healthy hair; is this something the film conveyed, or did it perpetuate notions of corporatism/colonialism?
