Back to Natural reveals the shocking truth about the intersection of hair, politics, and racial identity in Black communities and beyond. Directed by New York City-based clinical psychologist Gillian Scott-Ward, and inspired both by her clinical practice work and her drive to go natural, this call for healing, and exploration of the globalized policing of natural Black hair equally celebrates our history and natural styles that are taking the world by storm.blkdocs.com
