Book Description :

Long hair in the 60s, Afros in the early 70s, bobs in the 80s, fuschia in the 90s. Hair is one of the first attributes to catch our eye, not only because it reflects perceptions of attractiveness or unattractiveness, but also because it conveys important political, cultural, and social meanings, particularly in relation to group identity. Given that mainstream images of beauty do not privilege dark skin and tightly coiled hair, African American women's experience provides a starkly different perspective on the meaning of hair in social identity." --National Women's Studies Association Journal "Grab your copy at your local bookseller and get hip to what your hair is saying to others with regards to beauty, culture and politics. Learn about how culture has a love for coifs, because after all, so do you!" —Sophisticate's Black Hair Styles Guide Drawing on interviews with over 50 women, from teens to seniors, Hair Matters is the first book on the politics of Black hair to be based on substantive, ethnographically informed research. Focusing on the everyday discussions that Black women have among themselves and about themselves, Ingrid Banks analyzes how talking about hair reveals Black women's ideas about race, gender, sexuality, beauty, and power. Ultimately, what emerges is a survey of Black women's consciousness within both their own communities and mainstream culture at large.

Book Description :

Once Upon a Time in a Different World, a unique addition to the celebrated Children’s Literature and Culture series, seeks to move discussions and treatments of ideas in African America Children’s literature from the margins to the forefront of literary discourse. Looking at a variety of topics, including the moralities of heterosexism, the veneration of literacy, and the "politics of hair," Neal A. Lester provides a scholarly and accessible compilation of essays that will serve as an invaluable resource for parents, students, and educators. The much-needed reexamination of African American children’s texts follows an engaging call-and-response format, allowing for a lively and illuminating discussion between its primary author and a diverse group of contributors; including educators, scholars, students, parents, and critics. In addition to these distinct dialogues, the book features an enlightening generational conversation between Lester and his teenage daughter as they review the same novels. With critical assessments of Toni and Slade Morrison’s The Big Box and The Book of Mean People, bell hooks’ Happy to Be Nappy, and Anne Schraff’s Until We Meet Again, among many other works, these provocative and fresh essays yield a wealth of perspectives on the intersections of identity formations in childhood and adulthood.

Book Description :

The Embodied Child: Readings in Children’s Literature and Culture brings together essays that offer compelling analyses of children’s bodies as they read and are read, as they interact with literature and other cultural artifacts, and as they are constructed in literature and popular culture. The chapters examine the ideology behind the cultural constructions of the child’s body and the impact they have on society, and how the child’s body becomes a carrier of cultural ideology within the cultural imagination. They also consider the portrayal of children’s bodies in terms of the seeming dichotomies between healthy-vs-unhealthy bodies as well as able-bodied-vs-disabled, and examines flesh-and-blood bodies that engage with literary texts and other media. The contributors bring perspectives from anthropology, communication, education, literary criticism, cultural studies, philosophy, physical education, and religious studies. With wide and astute coverage of disparate literary and cultural texts, and lively scholarly discussions in the introductions to the collection and to each section, this book makes a long-needed contribution to discussions of the body and the child.

Book Description :

To those around Jergen Black, beauty equaled having straight hair; it was an equation that she never quite understood. All her young life, Jergen watched her now thin-haired mother, Mamma Dee, constantly smoke up the kitchen with a hot comb while straightening people's hair and bragging about how beautiful they were going to look when she finished. Jergen's choice to wear her hair natural is constantly critiqued by those around her, as well as by her "ghetto" grandmother who dates Stockton, the town drug lord who is half her age. Not only does Jergen have to worry about her mother becoming bald from burning out her own hair, she also has to worry about her grandmother's dangerous lifestyle getting the best of her. Jotting down the events of the day in the new diary that her ex-boyfriend's mother gave her provides Jergen with an outlet for her to express her thoughts freely. Jergen is able to make it through with the help of her three best friends who call themselves "La Natural"- four very smart black beauties who happily wear their hair natural and show it off despite the reaction they receive from the outside world.

Book Description :

Florida without Borders: Women at the Intersections of the Local and Global highlights the problems facing women around the world by featuring papers that explore women’s activism across borders regarding gender and human rights, issues regarding women and poverty, globalization, economic value of immigrant labor, militarism and human trafficking. Also discussed are the opportunities and obstacles women face when they act to counter the negative impact of these forces. This anthology is a collection of essays by feminist scholars and students who examine discourses on border crossings, political and cultural censorship, gendered codes of conduct, prescribed behavior for women and the activism that emerges to address identity formation, to advance contested meanings and to build coalitions. Throughout the essays, the authors investigate the concepts of the gendered body in the context of global activism, the uses of women’s bodies in domestic, military, and sexual service, and the breaching of the body’s borders and boundaries in the project of feminist social change.

Book Description :

The author presents case material from patients for whom "race" or color is a significant social and political concern which impacts on them personally. In the therapeutic dialogue and in dreams, these patients struggle to establish and effective individual identity in relation to whatever collective "racial" identity may have been either imposed on them or adopted by them. The Multicultural Imagination challenges the essentials view that restricts all individuals to this kind of collective identity. The book uses various analytic perspectives in both the Freudian and Jungian traditions. This book exposes the unconscious attitudes that have stood in the way of an authentically multicultural imagination. It encourages psychoanalysts and psychotherapists to recognize the importance of "race" or color within the unconscious and will interest those working in other fields, including cultural studies and "racial" and ethnic studies.

Book Description :

Stacy created this book in response to the many African-American women that approach her on a daily basis. These women ask her questions about her hair and express that they would like to do something similar to their hair. “It's impossible to give a stranger on the street the knowledge and experience you have gained for years.” Stacy decided to put it in writing. Initially it was going to be a website but that didn't work out. She is now glad that it didn't. The book is a self help, inspirational book designed to hopefully change the negative thinking African-Americans have about their God given hair. The book contains some poetry written by the author. It also shares many of the author's ups and downs when she transitioned from CROP (Chemically Relaxed Or Pressed) hair to an African inspired hairstyle. The book presents four aspects that African-American women will likely have to go through. She hopes that African-American women will realize how beautiful their hair truly is without it being straightened. The four aspects the book presents are listed below in brief summaries. Spiritual Transformation: A good start to begin the transformation from CROP hair to natural is to get quiet before God and simply ask Him for direction regarding your hair. It will be difficult hearing from God if you're not in a quiet place or if your mind is not quiet (full of stress and worries). Take deep breaths and close your eyes. Meditate on the scripture found in Genesis 1:31. God did not make a mistake with your hair. He purposely made our hair different from all of the other races. I don't know any other race of people whose hair is as unique as ours. And yet we will bend over backwards to straighten it. Remember, every thing that God made was good. Every thing. Mental Transformation: Become cognizant of your own language when describing your hair or someone else's hair texture. Control the atmosphere in your home by surrounding yourself with pictures of beautiful women with African inspired hairstyles. I have seen some beautiful natural hairstyles on packages of hair products. Instead of throwing the package away, hold on to it for inspiration. Look at these pictures everyday. Physical Transformation: You may have to take baby steps if you have worn your hair straight for most of your life. A baby step could be to give your weave a break. If you don't wear weaves then start letting your relaxer grow out. When you finally transition your hair, celebrate it. If you wear make-up put it on with your new hairstyle. Put your accessories on and your favorite outfit. Stand in front of the mirror alone with no distractions. Ask yourself what do you see? Don't ask anyone else until you have decided what you think about it. If you do ask someone, ask a close loved one. Say a simple prayer before you leave your house. Ask God to give you a boost in your security level with your new look. You will come to a point when you will not need to pray for confidence regarding your appearance. Emotional Transformation: Surround yourself with people who are more concerned with the inner you. Superficial people make superficial friends. Remember, people do no like change. People will not accept change or won't be able to see your beauty if you can't see it for yourself. If you ever come to the point where you feel the need to backslide because of what “they say”, look at the person that is being negative. Do you admire their personal style? Do they have a personal style or are they wearing the same styles as everybody else? I can honestly say that every negative comment, look or snare always, always came from someone whose style (clothes, hair, etc.) I did not personally think much of. Although this book is written for African-American women the book has a universal message. The message is to be yourself.
