AUTHOR’S NOTE

My whole life, black hair has been viewed as ugly, nappy, and unkempt. My whole life, women have damaged their natural hair to fit into the white/European beauty standards. My whole life, black women have spent millions of dollars to hide their natural hair under wigs. And, my whole life, I was taught to ignore European beauty standards and love my wild, nappy, kinky, curly hair.

 

Being born an only girl to a licensed beautician meant my hair was my mom’s pride and joy. She made it her mission to ensure I loved every inch of my hair, from its thick fullness to the little curly naps that grew at the back of my neck (My kitchen). My views on black hair were shaped in love, allowing me to see the true beauty of black hair. If you view black hair as a material (as I do), you see it as one of Earth’s most robust, most versatile materials. Black hair can take on multiple shapes, black hair has several different textures, most black women possess two or more textures or hair types, and black hair can be molded into hundreds of different hairstyles, some changing multiple times in one day. When you think about black hair as a material, you make it’s potential limitless, creating a superhero whose power is her hair; you make her the ultimate power in the universe. And when you make a black girl the ultimate power because of her natural hair, you give black and brown girls representation they’ve never had before. You provide them with love for their hair that has never been there before.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hello, I am Crown Shepherd, the author, and creator of this legendary comic. As someone who was raised around everything black hair, I’ve always had this unique view of black hair. I love that it is wild, free, and untamable. I love that it can go from bouncy curls to silky, wavy, shiny straight hair. I love that water and heat can change its texture; I love that black hair is so hated because no what race of hair can do what black hair can do. I wrote this for all the little superheroes with black hair.

They want to keep our boys lock in their boxes, with their ideas of how black boys should be represented in the world. Not to the best of standards either, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Look no further… We have it all right here! We have books, toys and special content made with the intent to empower, uplift and guide little black boys in a positive light!
