Publisher's Summary

Joining us at Audible Studios is television presenter, author and teaching fellow Emma Dabiri, who has published her first book, Don't Touch My Hair.

This book is all about why black hair matters and how it can be seen as a map of decolonisation. Dabiri takes us through the significant times, from pre-colonial Africa through the Harlem Renaissnace and Black Power and on to today's Natural Hair Movement. From Madam C. J. Walker to the rise of Shea moisture, from women's solidarity to 'black people time', Dabiri treads in the paths of forgotten African scholars and the provenance of Kim Kardashian's braids.

We spoke about Dabiri's experience growing up in Ireland and how the experience shaped her adult life, the book writing and researching process and how her hair has changed over the years.
