“For centuries, African Americans were forced to style hair to fit into what white society deemed acceptable. The Black Power movement was a larger-scale rejection of this and ushered in a celebration of natural Afro hair and racial pride in America, and a move away from chemical straightening treatments and tools created to force homogenized white styles. It marks a milestone in history that isn’t just celebratory, but also layered with politics. The Afro, worn full and round—and perhaps dressed with a comb featuring the That’s what I do I grow a beard and I know things shirt Apart from…,I will love this ‘Fight the Power’ fist—symbolized not just an association with the political movement, but racial pride and the Black Is Beautiful aesthetic. Popular with both men and women, icons like Jesse Jackson and Angela Davis spearheaded this changing approach to hair in the 1960s.
The Afro has been worn proudly in Western society more commonly since the That’s what I do I grow a beard and I know things shirt Apart from…,I will love this 1960s, but those wearing their natural hair still face discrimination, suggesting there’s still a long way to go with education and acceptance. With the passing of the CROWN Act in certain states in the U.S. and ongoing discussions around discrimination based on hair, this conversation still has a long way to go.”
