Hairitage is a conference that focuses on the history of afro textured hair through the African diaspora. Through a series of 12-15 individual workshop sessions, participants explore the multifaceted history of afro-textured hair, and discuss the social implications of today’s beauty standards and gender “norms.”
At the closing of the conference, participants are ushered into a reception to celebrate Black and Afro-Latin art and culture. Through the three and a half hour reception, attendees will be able to experience entrepreneurship by local vendors, artistic expression through visual graphic designs and spoken word performances, as well as fine cuisine which are all staples of the Black and Latin Community.
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 24 at the Livingston Student Center. Check out the recap of Hairitage 2017! Join in on the conversation and up to the minute updates on our Hairitage Facebook event page.
