Does wearing an Afro make you an activist? Are plaits political? And is straight hair _so_ last year? This episode we are super excited to welcome academic, activist and author of the powerful book “Don’t Touch My Hair”, Emma Dabiri! Join us as we delve deep into Emma’s upbringing in Ireland as a mixed-race woman, and the roots and reasons why she went on this fascinating hair journey. We comb through the history of Black hair and the choices we, as Black women of the diaspora, have made over the decades. And we ask now, in 2021, are we limiting our right to expression by making hair too political? Or are we just starting to uncover what our hair choices really say about us?
