Hair Piece: A Film for Nappy-Headed People

An animated satire on the question of self image for African American women from the perspective of hair styling. Lively tunes and witty narration accompany a quick-paced inventory of relaxers, gels and curlers, rituals all-too familiar to African American women, and indeed to all women confronted with an unattainable ideal of beauty. 1985. 10 min.
