International Black Hairitage Month” was founded By Regina Kimbell, as a celebration to strengthen the cultural bond internationally between Black people; through conversations of culture and economics, while celebrating our hairitage, ancestors and economic empowerment. The underlying theme supports natural holistic living and health.
My Nappy ROOTS will tell its story largely through the voices people who were, and are, instrumental in the changes that have influenced the cultural images, aesthetics and behavior of Black Americans. Film makers Regina Kimbell and Jay Bluemke assembles a world-class line-up of celebrities, Historians, authors, journalists, comedians, stylists and barbers, industry business icons, professional, and personal accounts on their Black hair journey.
This liberation is not only captured on film but experienced from beginning to end with
