Advance praise for Hair, Hair Everywhere

Thank you to Danielle Pitts for this glorious guide for families everywhere! In these pages I see my mother, my grandmother, my wife, our four children—our daughters with pompoms and braids, curls and twists, and all manner of glamorous styles. Our sons with locks, Afros, more locks and fades—and I marvel. I remember a cooling cap, a symbol of hope and joy. Beauty is indeed in the eyes of the beholder. I am happy and confident that others will see themselves in this book, and that young folks will discover with surprise and fascination the beautiful hair they see when they look in the mirror." Darryl Tookes, Singer, Pianist, Composer, Poet; Director, Music Industry Studies at Florida A&M University.
