Detangling Injustice

Detangling Injustice

‘Detangling Injustice’ is a project that raises awareness about the media’s distortion of cultural appropriation, specifically regarding black hairstyles. Using an activism- style collage, it showcases how white people are often praised for wearing black hairstyles while black individuals face judgment. The aim of the collage is to question the viewers’ biases and assumptions, encouraging critical thinking about the media’s role in shaping our perceptions. By focusing on black hair, the project exposes the media’s historical promotion of harmful stereotypes. The target of this project would be to spark dialogue, promote cultural sensitivity, and advocate for understanding and respect, particularly regarding the culture revolving around black hair.
