Join Jennifer Lord, industry expert, for this 2 hour workshop + 1 hour panel titled, “School of Natural Hollywood: Introduction to Black Hair on Stage and Screen.” This session will begin with the history of the natural hair movement, and its evolution through the years, culminating with understanding the truths of natural hair texture. This session aims to dismantle “excuses” surrounding Black hair with knowledge, stress the importance of removing “hair pressure” from Black artists, recognize experts in the industry by centering more opportunity with them, and educate producers about the responsibility of budgeting resources for Black hair.

The session portion of the afternoon will conclude with practical accommodations anyone can make for natural hair - including tools, products, best practices, and helpful reference points - and a brief Q&A.

We will then transition into a panel discussion surrounding Black hair - with a variety of guest panelists TBA!

NOTE: This is a ticketed event. Please visit our Eventbrite to purchase a ticket.
This THREE HOUR session will begin at 12:00 pm ET on Friday, July 31st, 2020.
