THE EVOLUTION OF HAIR
Some of you who attended Uzima Expo 2014 in July http://www.uzimaexpo.co.uk/) would have witnessed a tremendous presentation from Tina Lasisi called The Evolution of Afro Hair.
In addition to gaining a master degree in Biological Anthropology, Tina will be carryout additional research for her Phd. She has been offered a PhD position in Cambridge, but no funding, and has applied to two American universities (Harvard and Penn State) as the professors there are keen to work with her on this project which also come with high application and exam fees.
The GOOD NEWS is that the first target has been reached £1000 plus via crowd funding as part of her financial income towards education admission fees, interviews etc. At present she is trying hard to get as many sponsors as possible in the next few days so that she can show to the funding committees that people are dedicated to this project. If she manages to raise an additional 1000-2000, then she could use this for field work/sample collection in multiple regions of Africa so that she can finally have the scientific evidence to argue against all those who homogenise Africans.
This is the Human Hair Diversity Facebook Page for the project – like to follow: http://goo.gl/FuVAm0
And this is the official website with more information on the study and my motivation for doing this research: http://humanhairdiversity.com/
Many thanks for your support
