Solange – “Don’t Touch My Hair”

Solange Knowles, an American singer/songwriter and daughter of a hairdresser gives us piece about the microaggressions black women face because of their hair.

The artist notes hair is “incredibly spiritual, and, energetically, it really encompasses and expresses who we are.”

She continues that the meaning of the song “is as much as what it feels like to have your whole identity challenged on a daily basis, although physically touching the hair is extremely problematic!”
