Screening: "Braided: An American Hair Story"
Beyond three strands of hair interlocked around each other, there's a complicated story. Black women in America have been braiding their hair since there have been Black women in America. And during most of that time, the look was derided or ignored by mainstream culture. Lupita Nyong'o, Young M.A., Ayana Bird, Vernon François and more talk about braids and black hair culture in America.
