African American hair is naturally curly, kinky, coiled, wavy - and for decades Black women have used products to chemically alter their natural hair state and make it straight.  But now there is a new movement among Black women to embrace their natural hair and celebrate its unique texture.  So why is this such a challenge for many African American women who for years have been told that beauty equals long, straight, flowing hair?  How did the wearing of natural hair become a political issue African American women? And what about African American men who are not on board with natural hair?  On the next Another View we'll examine the natural hair movement from a female and male perspective.  Our guests include Rosalynne Whitaker-Heck, co-owner of HECK Productions and founder of MANE Event - my authentically natural evolution; Jennifer Heck-Cole, who shares her "going natural" story; NSU political science professor Carol Pretlow; author, journalist and talk show host Wil LaVeist; and award-winning photographer Jason Johnson, creator of the natural hair photography exhibition, "Yours Naturally:  Beauty That Grows on You".  Join us for insightful conversation about the political, social, emotional and physical issues surrounding Black women and their hair on the next Another View, Friday, September 6 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
