From the author: “Black women consider their hair their crowning glory, an expression of beauty and a personal identity of who they are. I had the idea for this story while researching the history of Black children with medical hair loss (alopecia) and how it affects their sense of self and how meaningful it is for them to receive wigs that have the look and feel of their natural textured hair.”
Picture books about Black hair are having a big moment: NFL star Matthew A. Cherry has written Hair Love, publishing in May 2019, with art by New York Times bestselling illustrator Vashti Harrison.
