That Hair Thing...Explores the many, often unspoken questions we all have about black women's hair. It clarifies the complex connections between hair styling choices and identity, self-worth and personal empowerment. It challenges and delights as it explains why hair is such a compelling issue for African American women. Dr. Cornwell's wit and probing insight take a much discussed topic to a new level.

Review:

"...this is an intriguing presentation." -- The Bookwatch

Black women's hair is the subject of a cultural critique which considers issues of hair control and display within the Afro-American female community. From the history of hair practices to a new 'sisterlocks' approach, this is an intriguing presentation. -- Midwest Book Review
