The Politics Of Hair: Part 2
Hear listener essays, and a conversation about red heads!
Recently, we did a show about the politics of hair, and we talked about African hair, blondes, and gray hair - We didn't have nearly enough time to cover all hair types, especially redheads. So we decided to devote two segments of today's show to talk about the stereotypes redheads face, and hear from some listeners who had something to say about our first show.
Caroline Murray wrote us to correct the understanding that there are no blondes over the age of 30, Kate Rushin emailed to talk about the challenges of her own hair as an African American woman, and Chion Wolf wrote an essay about the questions that inevitably come up about her dreadlocks.
