Artist Andrea Pippins illustrates Elizabeth Acevedo's most famous spoken-word poem, an ode to the beauty of natural black hair. At once a celebration and a powerful reminder that you cannot fix what was never broken. Simply gorgeous art and prose.

— Cathy


They tell me to fix my hair.

And by fix, they mean straighten, they mean whiten;

but how do you fix this shipwrecked

history of hair?

In her most famous spoken-word poem, author of the Pura Belpr -winning novel-in-verse The Poet X Elizabeth Acevedo embraces all the complexities of Black hair and Afro-Latinidad--the history, pain, pride, and powerful love of that inheritance.

Perfect for fans of Mahogany L. Browne's Black Girl Magic or Jason Reynolds's For Everyone, this poem is the ideal gift, treasure, or inspiration for listeners of any age.
