About this Event
Centring the narratives of Black women who choose to shave their heads, the multi-disciplinary Bald Black Girl(s) project explores perceptions of masculinity, femininity and androgyny alongside sexuality, gender identity and barbershop dynamics.
‘Reign’ is a short afro-futuristic visual offering that re-imagines a world where only bald/low shaven exist. Following the screening, the panel will be moderated by producer and curator Korantema Anyimadu and the panellists include project participants Shaleema Burroughs, Sharon Walters, Georgette Olaiya and Sarah Atayero.
Korantema Anyimadu is a cultural producer and zine maker working in heritage and the arts. Her exhibition and community project exploring Black womxn, hair and heritage won a Making History Award from the Mayor of London and is currently shown at the Migration Museum.
