Cheyenne Cochrane: A celebration of natural hair | TED Talk | TED.com November 2016 at TEDxBeaconStreet


Cheyenne Cochrane explores the role that hair texture has played in the history of being black in America — from the heat straightening products of the post-Civil War era to the thousands of women today who have decided to stop chasing a conventional beauty standard and start embracing their natural hair. “This is about more than a hairstyle,” Cochrane says. “It’s about being brave enough not to fold under the pressure of others’ expectations.”
