    I Am Not My Hair
    (Oakland University, 2015-01-01) Turner, Feliece; Clason, Christopher; Garfinkle, David
    People in society often base their identity on the way they look, modeling themselves after images seen in the media. Constructed through cultural ideals, image as identity has be­ come the basis for determining societal norms. In this research I use Black feminist theory to show how hair in the Black com­munity has become a contributing factor when determining standards of identity through image, as well as through cul­tural acceptance of what it means to be Black. Through au­toethnography I analyze the ways in which societal, cultural, gendered and media norms control race representations based on hair.
