Guess Who's Coming to Radio??!! on 12/08/11
as the conversation on hair is continuous for us at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!'; this week, we wanted to take the time to focus on the concept of 'good hair'- namely, the film. amidst all of the positive reviews for the film, we wanted to see for ourselves how effective the message was in discussing the socio-political issues and connections regarding the so-called 'black hair industry'.
overall, 'good hair' is healthy hair; is this something the film conveyed, or did it perpetuate notions of corporatism/colonialism?
with that, we wanted to engage the community in discussing the film, either in critique or praise; does it serve it's purpose of educating the masses on 'our' hair issues, or did it fail? paula and nia (of 'the evesdrop'), two 'natural haired' ladies, will be joining us in this dialog. if you want to engage, please call 503 231 8187.
let the conversation commence!
