About this artwork
This artwork is part of the gallery Mixed Media Boxes.

They said my mama N’nyala was the original soul sista. Mama said nappy hair was the best stuff on earth. That our hair was fine as it was, it didn’t need straightening. That she would not torture herself or her baby with hot combs, nor endure the stench of burning hair. That resilient nappy hair is a model of resistance; no matter what’s done to it—fried, dyed, laid to the side—it will return to its original state. It always comes back home.
