Description

Speculating about the birth of rock and roll and the best curl pattern, this film explores Black queer identity and self-acceptance as a pathway to personal utopia. Origin of Hair culls from Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s legacy as a Black queer woman in the ’50s and ’60s, claiming power through musical invention and radical self-love.
