DESCRIPTION

Who am I? This basic question of personal identity sparked the idea for this powerful documentaryMy Nappy ROOTS is a vibrant depiction of the complex social, political, and cultural influences that have dominated the dialogue surrounding African American hairstyles.  A fascinating array of historians, entertainers, and hair care specialists provide historical, professional, and personal accounts of their black hair journey—exploring styling patterns, cultural trends, and the billion dollar a year black hair care industry. 

My Nappy ROOTS has a running time of 78 minutes.  To find out more about the film visit www.mynappyrootsthemovement.com.
