Hair today, unprocessed tomorrow

art8414

March 9, the University of Illinois Springfield Engaged Citizenship Common Experience Speakers Series presents the documentary, Natural Women, and a discussion with filmmaker Cindy Hurst. Natural Women chronicles the journey of a diverse sampling of African-American women who decided to wear their hair in its natural state. Also interviewed are Psychologists Dr. Na’im Akbar and Dr. Kobi Kambon, fathers of the African/Black psychology movement. This program was coordinated by UIS student organization “Kinky & Curly: Natural Hair Empowerment Club,” whose purpose is to reconstruct societal definitions of beauty, while celebrating natural uniqueness, and co-sponsored by the UIS Diversity Center and Women’s Center.
