    For those of us who grew up with Essence magazines sprawled over the bedroom floor, with the smell of fried hair on the hot comb and deep conversations about love and collective pain will understand the magnitude of this piece. It is an introductory journey into the politics of hair, beauty, and color on what it means to be a black woman in white Amerika. I watched this documentary five years ago and the impression has been long lasting to say the least. Pressing irons, braid extensions, "the great white hope", mixed political warfare waging new meaning to the phrase beauty is only skin deep.
