Audience: Eden Jeffries
Ella uses the journey of black hair from girlhood to womanhood as a vessel in which to capture the complexities of discovering self and cultivating identity while navigating the intricacies of racism, self-deprecation, cultural codes, and empowerment that is the black experience. Love, Locs, & Liberation is a wonderful weaving of humor, celebration, nostalgia, and social commentary. Never a dull moment. You don't need to be black, or a woman to be captured and moved by this story and you SHOULD see it, but if you are black, and a woman, then you damn sure NEED to see it!
