In this insightful and carefully researched book, Emma Dabiri explores the history and meaning of black hair as a representation of the black experience. Far from being ‘just hair’, black hairstyling reflects black culture, from pop culture to cosmology, from prehistoric times to the (afro)futuristic. A fascinating and educational read, Don’t Touch My Hair offers an original and important perspective on black history.
