Despite our more liberal world views, black hair continues to be erased, appropriated and stigmatised to the point of taboo. Why is that? In this talk, historian and broadcaster Emma Dabiri explores the cultural significance of African hairstyles, using them as a blueprint for decolonisation - from pre-colonial Africa, through the Harlem Renaissance, Black Power and into today's Natural Hair Movement, the Cultural Appropriation Wars and beyond.
This event takes place within our London Festival Hub. Our Hub venues are all within a 5-minutes walking distance from each other so you can easily travel between talks. Remember: there's a 20-25 minute break between each talk to make it as easy as possible to get to the talks you like.
