Such an insightful and well-expressed book on the history of black hair and black culture. Emma Dabiri is a dream to listen to. Would give six stars if I could.

This audiobook was such a pleasure to listen to, like settling down with a glass of wine and chatting with an old friend about everything under the sun. Dolly Alderton is a treasure!

This book should be required reading for anyone living in the “west”. Akala brilliantly traces the threads of race and class in British and broader society, and shows how they underpin our modern institutions. Interweaving personal narrative and political analysis, this was a joy to listen to and would make edifying reading for both young black activists and old white uncles. Do yourself a favour and listen.
