Afro Archives

Afro Archives


Does your hair represent who you are? “Afro Archives, A Performer’s World” is a series of talks on hair from the viewpoint of actors.  Music composed by Livvy Baker-Mendoza.

Filmed on location at The Black Cultural Archives in Brixton and over Skype and FaceTime, the aim of the project is to explore the experience of women with afro type hair by talking about our relationships with our hair from the perspective of different ages, ethnicities and genders, within the context of acting, where what we look like, matters.

You can watch our latest films and subscribe to our YouTube Channel.

You can also read every hairy word, diligently typed by my own fair hands, in the Afro Archives Transcripts!

Amazing Hair, Talks. #AfroArchives
