I met the ladies of Black Girl Flow the day before the London natural hair event when they were interviewing Felicia Leatherwood for a natural hair documentary they were working on. I had the chance to flip the cameras on them and have them tell me about natural hair in the UK and their documentary, Kickin It With the Kinks, at the London Workshop. I’m really inspired and impressed with what these ladies are doing and am thrilled to share it with you!
Kickin It With the Kinks is still in production, but it has won a prize for the best documentary in Cynthia’s (the director) school’s film department. There is no question that Chris Rock’s Good Hair movie had an amazingly strong impact on bringing to light the the issue of black hair, and it’s great to see the specific issue of natural hair identity being explored so profoundly.
