Last night Lexus Features joined comedian Chris Rock present his new documentary, “Good Hair.”
The documentary explores the connection most African-Americans obsession with our hair.
Rock says he was inspired to make the film when his young daughter asked him, “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?” and he and Stilson examine Black America’s obsession with their hair as they visit the Bronner Brothers International Hair Show, an annual trade show for the African-American hair care industry which includes fierce competitions among stylists from around the country and demonstrations of new hair products and techniques. Along the way, Rock also talks to a number of African-American luminaries about their hair issues (including Maya Angelou, The Rev. Al Sharpton, Nia Long, Raven Symone, Ice-T and Paul Mooney), researches the dangers of many common hair straightening treatments, reveals the surprising expense of regular hair “relaxing” and weaves, and ponders what the pursuit of straight hair says about African-American cultural identity.
I think that every black person in America should walk – not run – to see this film. I personally never realized our obsession with our hair ran as deep as this film portrays.
It’s common connection film, that we all need should run to support.
