Hair and Identity in Black Culture: The Importance of Confidence & Connection

May 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Many parents who foster or adopt transracially find themselves needing education in the proper care of hair that may be much different from their own. But actual haircare is just the beginning. In this webinar, Tamekia Swint will walk us through the historical, social, and emotional importance of hair on Black identity, culture, and self-confidence. She will also discuss how she uses haircare education with transracial families as a catalyst for building connections and celebrating diversity.

$5/person |  Space is limited to 100 participants, so register soon!
