I Shall Not Fall

This piece is a commentary on the oppression of Black hair. It could be seen as quite controversial as I am commenting on Black natural hair which is being oppressed, by the industry. All though some of those industries are Black owned, their roots come from the socio-political relationships in which Black assimilation into a white society is imperative for the white economy. For instance, a young Black girl is told her afro is too distracting and therefore other children will fail school. It is important that the beauty of Black natural hair is expressed, and not for a fashion fad, but for the confidence of Black youth
