Hair is a carrier of our DNA; it holds the roots to our cultural histories while maintaining the essence of who we are now. The series of lithographs Nappy Roots references the braid as one of the most common hair styles worn by black women. Whether unraveling or held together by a rubber band, the braid’s main purpose is to hold fibers together. I am exploring the relationship between black women and their hair and examining hair styles as a symbol of holding oneself together.
