My Hair, My Dignity (Video)

What’s in a hairstyle – a perception of you, a status, an identity stamp? As part of our #OwnYourIdentityCampaign, we look at how wearing natural hair empowers some among the wigs and weaves. We discuss how wearing your hair a different way can shape someone’s perception of you as well as change the way you view yourself – in social and political situations.
