People are talking about „good‟ hair. What is good hair? Where did the concept of good hair come from? Why is this „golden fleece‟ such an obsessive quest for so many African
-American women? How did it rise to its hegemonic status in the Black community? In his quest to find the answer to these
questions, Mr. Rock has stirred up a hornet‟s nest, but in the midst of all the buzz, did he find an answer for his
daughter and the other daughters of the Diaspora?
