“I Like it Kinky: Responding to Haters of Black Natural Hair with YouTube”

Presenters: Robin Phelps-Ward (Muncie, Indiana) and Crystal T. Laura (Chicago, Illinois)

Black girls who “go natural”—meaning abstain from chemically straightening their hair—often have a lot of haters: peers, family, teachers, people who make cultural artifacts that don’t look like Black naturals or policies that regulate how Black naturals can/cannot style their hair. This workshop, crafted with youth and the adults who love them in mind, explores how YouTube vlogs can be created to respond to negativity toward Black naturals and develop solidarity among them.

Look forward to weekly posts highlighting workshops and keynotes from the conference! Only 10 weeks away! Registration is now open on our official website!

Coming to Oakland, July 9-12th!
