Black people have long contended with standards of beauty that have dictated the proper way to wear their hair. On the next Practically Speaking, we explore Black hair, women and men reclaiming their natural hair and how the community is wrestling with this trend.

Whether you’re “long hair, don’t care” or “nappy and happy,” you’ll want to hear this installment. Tune in tomorrow at 11am on | 90.7 (Chi) | 89.5 (NWI).
