Hair: You Have It, I Have It
About this video:
This video took first place for the Fall 2009 semester course of "Classism, Racism, and Sexism." It explores through the local Albany community the racial, gendered, sexualized, classed, and able-bodied politics relating to hair issues. From the "good hair"/"bad hair" debates in black and Latino/a communities to dreadlocks to hair loss among cancer patients to assumptions about sexual orientation and femininity/masculinity, this project creatively examines how hair becomes an important part of our identities.
