The underlying theme supports natural holistic living and health.

 
My Nappy ROOTS:  A Journey Through Black Hair-itage, an edutainment documentary, takes an unparalleled look at how black hair is used as a prism through which to look at cultural, societal, and political issues in the African American community over time.  The documentary displays an array of various techniques and styles including the conk, press and curl, the afro, the jheri curl, and locs. Each distinctive style marks a distinctive time in history, politics, and African American culture.
