Black Hair Stories is a multidisciplinary project that celebrates women, non binary folks, hair and identity. It was born from my MA dissertation on afro hair and heritage and has included intergenerational workshops, oral history, talks, events and lots and lots of zines.
The Salon was an intimate evening with talks, music, drag and poetry celebrating Black women, non binary folks and hair. It was held in Leyton as part of the 2019 Waltham Forest Borough of Culture and at ONCA in Brighton in 2020. See videos and photos from the event here.
My exhibition with Nana Ama Owusu Ansah, Plaits, Princesses + Pink Moisturiser won a Making History Award from the Mayor of London and was featured in Room to Breathe at the Migration Museum.
