Hair can be a political statement, or so documentary filmmaker Michelle Farris-Lewis is setting out to prove with New Growth: The Natural Progression. From chemical treatment as a means of assimilation to afros, twists or dreadlocks as a point of pride, the film-in-progress details follicular trends of African-Americans through the decades. Farris-Lewis will bring both projector and camera to the Shrine of the Black Madonna Cultural Center and Bookstore as she shows clips and gathers interviews for the as-yet-unfinished film. Do you have a hair story to add?
