Black Hair Petting Zoo?

Illustration for article titled Black Hair Petting Zoo?

So, the folks over at Un'ruly have organized "an interactive public art exhibit, dubbed You Can Touch My Hair, where strangers from all walks of life will have the welcomed opportunity to touch various textures of black hair."


Un'ruly is a site intended "to celebrate and inspire black hair." One supposes they've approached this with positive intent, but given the long -running controversy over this subject, I'm having a difficult time parsing out what there is to be gained by fetishizing black women like animals in a petting zoo.
