Quote:
"The film [PICK] is based on my own personal experiences growing up as a Black woman with a natural Afro. I felt from a very young age I wasn't pretty if I had natural hair simply because there was very little representation of me ... The white woman with blonde hair would be portrayed as a beautiful woman."
-- Alicia K. Harris
