African American Women’s Documentary

So I’m about to watch the documentary Good Hairhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt1213585/ Black women’s hair has become an issue at the forfront of our nation. It is common knowledge that black hair takes some pretty stong products and processes to manage it. At first glance it seems like just a women’s personal issue, so I was surprised when I heard of this http://www.npr.org/blogs/codeswitch/2014/04/11/301509842/congressional-black-caucus-urges-rethink-of-army-hair-rules

I am interested since I heard about the change policies of the American military for African American women’s hairstyles in the news this April. It seems the new policies affect black women more than other races and I’m off to see why. Happy Veteran’s Day!
