EMBRACING YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY

 

For centuries women of color have battled with the distinction of what signifies true beauty in their communities, both psychologically and emotionally.

This piece takes a look into the lives of young women from different walks and their struggle to maintain their tresses, whether natural or processed.
