Hamidou, Chayana Amina
MetadataShow full item record
This study aims to explore the experiences of young Black women educated in former all-white schools, better known as Model C schools, and their stories around the policing of their hair. This phenomenon is particularly prominent in interracial spaces where whiteness is normalised and people of colour are ostensibly the minority, such as at Historically White Model C Schools. This qualitative study seeks to understand these experiences and their linkages to historical events, utilising Critical Race Theory (CRT) and the concept of Politicisation as theoretical frameworks for analysis.
