Hair Love

So why's the animated short "Hair Love" so incredibly lovable? I mean, besides how the girl and her family feel so real, and the celebration of afro-textured hair and its beauty are brilliantly brought to life. I found it especially lovable due to how empowering it is after the long history of black hair discrimination that still goes on today. Check out more at my January blogpost "Children's books and afro-textured hair". Congrats on your Oscar, Matthew A. Cherry!
