Some people tell me to “fix” my hair.

And by fix, they mean straighten; they mean whiten.

But how do you fix this shipwrecked

history of hair?

In her most famous spoken-word poem, award-winning author and poet Elizabeth Acevedo celebrates the beauty and meaning of natural Black hair, her words vibrantly illustrated by artist Andrea Pippins. This powerful book embraces all the complexities of Afro-Latinidad—the history, pain, pride, and powerful love of that inheritance.
