As an African American woman struggling to combat stereotypes of the 'Angry Black Woman', what do you do when you are placed in a public situation of violation? This was my response to a recent experience. 
This video consists of a short compilation of works in progress that are a part of my senior thesis, Stranded. African American hair has become the catalyst for my exploration of the following ideas in relation to African American identity:
Colorism​
Stereotypes​
The process of beautification​
Absurdity behind expectations​
The process of 'uncovering'​
African American women in media
