How has the Eurocentric ideal of beauty influenced black hair through modern history? "My Nappy Roots" will vibrantly depict some of the complex social, political and cultural influences that have dominated the dialogue surrounding African and African American hairstyles from styling patterns and cultural trends to the business of black hair care products, services and advertising.
