An outstanding volume!
The Washington Post
Because of the variety of voices in Tenderheaded...the book has a feeling of breadth and nuance.

A must-read that unravels our deep-rooted history and relationship with hair.

Peter Harris' piece...is just one gem in this outstanding volume.
The Times-Picayune (New Orleans)
Perfectly captures black people's progress (or lack of it) on the hair issue....Valuable and enlightening to anyone who is tenderheaded in one way or another.
Black Issues Book Review
It's time to get down to the nappy truth about all the pros and cons of black hair. Harris and Johnson's 'comb-bending collection' is a tell-it-like-it-is compilation of essays that give insight into what we and others think about it, the history behind our hair, and how it affects our lives.
This remarkable array of writings and images illuminates black women's hair and its cultural meaning....Beyond the variety of contributors and the provocative quotes and historical tidbits sprinkled between the entries, it's the wealth of feeling rooted in hair that makes this volume so compelling. With its (s)nappy jacket and generous helpings of art and photos, this mini-encyclopedia should attract an avid audience.
