“Mrs. Obama gracefully handles taking up more space, and it goes beyond hair,” explained Mock. “It’s her height, her curves, her eyes, her voice. I just wanted more of her, and that hair was giving me more of her, and symbolically more of all of us — ‘us’ meaning brown girls who feel there isn’t enough space for us.”
On Sunday, March 25th, I’ll be joining MAD Free with Michaela angela Davis for a Modern Women’s History Month conversation in Harlem at 1pm. Please join us - it’s FREE! - as we discuss image, acceptance, self-definition and a bit of hair too.
Here’s the event’s details:
