    "In a time when image is indeed everything, our personal appearance has a tremendous effect on nearly aspect if our lives on a daily basis. Our choice of hairstyle can mean the difference between acceptance and rejection by groups and individuals. The choices made by African American are particularly charged, often affecting the wearer and the viewer in unique and sometimes life-altering ways. Good and Bad Hair featured sixty evocative photographs of African-American men, women, and children, documenting contemporary Black hairstyles and their role as a feature of African-American culture. On one level, the photographs present reader with a variety of popular and personal approaches to wearing one's hair. On another level, they isolate what amounts to a bold, assertive departure from the common definition of American beauty that excludes the physical features of many people of African descent. This narrow definition of beauty has created a race-based measurement for what is considered "good" and "bad" hair. Gaskin's pictures identify African Americans from different regions of the United States who expressively symbolize their sense of self and often their sense of an African or Black identity through their hair. Good and Bad Hair highlights a dynamic form of personal expression and provides a mean for opening up discussion of that expression through a photography book accessible to all." Ref LPB0449
