BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2020
Explore the ways Black American life is integral to today's conversations about politics and culture
In this multipart project, we dedicate 29 days to untangling Black hair conversations, unpacking the many desires of Black voters and underscoring the importance of Black people's contributions to food and culture. Let this February be a reminder for some and a lesson for others that the traditions of Black Americans are embedded in the fabric of this country. We belong here.
Kinky, straight, weaved up and everything in between, HuffPost celebrates Black hair as an artistic form of expression. This multimedia project features photos, video and articles about the culture and traditions entangled with our tresses. The digital hair museum is the mane attraction. It features 18 hair enthusiasts, photographed by Jessica Pettway, who showcase the versatility and beauty of our crowning glory. Dive in.
