August 2020


directed by Gillian Scott-Ward, PhD

The shocking truth about the intersection of hair, politics, and racial identity in Black communities is revealed in this documentary, inspired by New York City-based clinical psychologist Gillian Scott-Ward’s clinical practice work and her drive to go natural. This call for healing also serves as an exploration of the globalized policing of natural Black hair while equally celebrating Black history and how natural Black hairstyles are taking the world by storm.

In 1898 in Wilmington, NC, an armed mob of Democrat-backed white supremacists opened fire on thriving middle-class African-American neighborhoods, slaughtering hundreds and exiling thousands out of the city for good.  Now, using rare photographs, original research, and testimonies from the descendants of the victims, the truth is finally revealed on how the Wilmington Massacre became the springboard for white supremacy and Jim Crow throughout the United States, and how the devastation still affects Black American life to this day.
