Elizabeth Acevedo's Poem "Hair" Takes On Beauty Standards

This Dominican-American Poet's Spoken-Word Piece Sends a Powerful Message to Latinas

Dominican-American poet Elizabeth Acevedo eloquently said everything you've always wanted to say about your hair in a powerful piece. Through spoken word, she takes on the discriminatory beauty standards in the Latino community, specifically the idea that "good hair" is straight hair, saying, "My mother tells me to fix my hair, and by fix she means straighten. She means whiten." And that's just the first line. Prepare yourself for all the chills when you watch the full performance above. Her empowering message will inspire you to stop trying to "fix what was never broken."
