The Story Of Afro Hair

K.N. Chimbiri, illustrated by Joelle Avelino

Scholastic

The Story of Afro Hair celebrates the history, fashion and styles of Afro hair over the last 5,000 years.

From plaits to the Gibson Girl, cornrows to locks, the hi-top fade to funki dreds, The Story of Afro Hair is the ultimate book of Afro hairstories.

Kicking off with an explanation of how Afro hair type grows and why, The Story of Afro Hair then takes us right back to the politics and fashion of Ancient Egypt.

Speeding forwards to modern times we experience the Kingdom of Benin, Henry VIII's court, the enslavement of African peoples, the Harlem Renaissance, the beginnings of Rastafarianism, Britain in the 1980s – and much more.

Exclusive art prints and bespoke signed bookplates will be made available.
