African Americans deal with hair issues and color-ism issues. It’s not uncommon to hear people still say that someone who’s hair is straighter and softer is “good hair” while curlier and more coarse hair is considered undesirable by some.
Viola Davis will blow you away with what she says in response to why she no longer feels the need to wear wigs in order to look pretty or beautiful. In this video, she talks about being both a dark skinned woman and having curly hair.
When people first heard about the young gymnastics champion, Gabby Douglas, there was a lot of focus and talk about her hair which many people thought was sad because it took the focus and attention away from her amazing accomplishments.
Viola Davis’ bold step in removing her wig and wearing her natural hair also got a lot of attention and the good thing is that she was prepared to answer the questions because she was actually sending a message with her actions.
Do you agree with Viola Davis; do women hide behind wigs and only feel pretty when they wear them?
