the Hair Chronicles: the story of three women of color searching for a paper topic for a graduate class. During their constant and hilarious procrastination, they discover common hair issues that tie them together with deeper roots than the hair on their head. African girl works through her insecurities. Her struggle makes it difficult to find the perfect hairstyle, if it even exists. Black girl has learned from a young age the importance of hair care and how to maintain her perceived perfect hairstyle. Yet she strives to understand the deeper lessons that her mother was trying to teach her. Mixed girl battles judgment in her divided world and struggles for balance and the need to feel complete while trying to be defined by more than her hair. Through their own personal stories, the three women discover they knew exactly what to write about all along.
