About: Afros and black natural hair was not always embraced en masse by the black community. Afros were popularized during the Black Is Beautiful/Civil Rights Movement, a time when self-love was articulated as a form of political resistance against white supremacy. The Black American commercial market was inundated with products that allowed Black folks to use beauty/aesthetics as a site of radical politics - including afropicks adorned with picks and peace symbols, hair products, advertisements and popular culture messaging.
