F.A.R. will discuss the touchy subject of beauty enhancements as it applies to Black women and men. Are weaves, perms, wigs, dyed blonde hair etc. beauty enhancements or are they examples of self-hate? Are butt injections, butt implants and skin bleaching simply choices or are they examples of self-hate? How do we identify whether "beauty enhancements" are just choices or are actually rooted in self-hate that has been instilled in Black people culturally? Can we be proud to be Afrikan and move forward as a group with proper self-esteem while still doing these things. Join us to find out.
