Join us for a screening of the Oscar award-winning, animated short film Hair Love (7 min.), followed by a conversation with the film’s writer and director, Matthew Cherry. Hair Love centers around the relationship between an African American father, Stephen, his daughter, Zuri, and her hair. This story was born out of a lack of representation in mainstream animated projects and a desire to promote hair love amongst young men and women of color.

Following the conversation, enjoy a small reception and book signing with Cherry; copies of the Hair Love children’s book will be available for purchase.
