I’m casually considering growing my hair out a little. I’m conflicted. Gotta say, though, seeing this on my Twitter feed tonight helped a bit. Still undecided, but we’ll see.
I want to write a good long post or essay someday about the politics of African male hair because there’s a lot to say. Maybe some of this can go into the Decolonizing Mormonism book? I still remember as a teenager wishing to have long shaggy hair like a lacrosse player. I looked into the option of growing out dreads, but I recoiled quickly when I learned what the process of growing dreads actually entails.
I felt a sense of loss and exclusion as I realized the textural differences between my hair and the hair of my peers. And since then I’ve always thought about my hair in a discourse of lack and inability. What would it be like to re-imagine my hair in terms of what I can do with it—rather than what I can’t do?
