Class Experience

Students will enhance their understanding and awareness of the personal and political power of Black hair in the American and global context.
Students will have weekly assignments including:
- Using Canva to create a Hair Show poster and Beauty Salon Hair Style Chart
- Writing a Poem or Short Story to showcase their personal hair journey or what they've learned in class thus far
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The history of Black hair is complex, and Black women have often experienced violence and stigma due to anti-Black racism and misogyny. Some course discussions may be difficult for students to hear, especially if it is new information. Please be available for your student to share their newfound knowledge and assist them in unpacking the complexities of these subjects. 

Google Drive/Slides: Google Drive/Slides will only be used in screen-share mode by the instructor to present course content and information on the in-class art assignment during week 2. 

YouTube: Class videos will be listed on YouTube and shared weekly in our Outschool classroom. Students may also use YouTube for further independent research with parents permission.

Canva: Canva will be utilized to create individual hair salon style posters, popularized in the Black community.
