The Unyielding Roots: What is Your Hair Story? collection is a community-made space. It exists to highlight the spectrum of experiences, feelings, wants, and needs surrounding our crowns. It strives to destigmatize centuries of programmed self-hate towards our hair textures by allowing us to be the sole narrators of our stories. Dive into these tales of kinks and curls and come out inspired to tell your own: the hair you've loved, resented, lost and even rebirthed.

The Unyielding Roots: What is Your Hair Story? collection is so needed and a beautiful gift to Black women everywhere. I love the wide range of voices and experiences. Kiana Davis has gifted us with the experiences of close to one hundred Black women and their relationships with their hair. There is something magical that happens as you read the collection, and you see yourself reflected through other people’s stories. Davis gives us renewed strength and courage to resist the narrative of what we’ve been told it means to be beautiful.
