PASSION PROJECT | PUBLICATION 2019
Natural Roots is a passion project I created with the intent to gain a historic perspective of natural hair in America and it’s correlation to the societal views of today. It has been a long battle for Black bodies to embrace their natural roots and styles. It is helpful to examine history to understand how the past impacts the present. This project grabs a snippet of time sharing historical facts and celebrating the beauty of natural hair. Each illustration is inspired by various talents, photographers, and research.* (Illustrations have no direct correlation to caption and are used for presentation/informational purposes)
