This piece illustrates the intimacy that comes with hair care and the role it plays in Black American culture. At the focal point of the image is the mother whose hands intricately braid her child’s hair, the grandmother figure stands the tallest and represents ancestral guidance being passed down to younger generations. The action of braiding each other’s hair serves an electric-like current of knowledge and pride. Intergenerational hair care is a form of self-care.
