My Hair Goes Up uses essays and poetics to examine the California *CROWN Act (SB 188), a law written to create a respectful and open workplace, and world for natural hair.

This book is a poetic tribute to the lofty, helical, gravity defying hair that deserves to exist freely, and it shares a heartening perspective on the norms surrounding the legacy of contrived social divisions.

My Hair Goes Up, poetically deconstructs problematic human divisions and finds solutions that will create an equal existence for all people.
