Accepting Natural Hair
The surrounding images are the advertisements created for my project celebrating the natural hair and curls of people of colour. Inspired by my young niece I have written, illustrated and published the book shown in these advertisements. The target audience for this publication is children of colour aged 4 and above; the book follows a young protagonist in their unique struggle to find the perfect hairstyle before their day begins. As a mixed-race woman who has struggled with her ethnic identity, I believe it is essential to teach young children to love their reflection to begin to build their self-love.
