About this submission
"Black Girl. Black Boy. Bald." is a mini-documentary series about Black women, men, and children living with or having experienced the triumphs, challenges, and adversities of being diagnosed with various forms of Alopecia. Jasmine 'Jazzi' Johnson, the creator and director of the series -- is a multi-media creator, writer, journalist and producer born with Alopecia Areata in the late 80s. This segment is the first in a series which will explore the complexities of belonging to a culture in which hair is not only a distinct signature but also a rite of passage for many young girls. Johnson also explores the ways in which the disease has uniquely impacted Black boys and men. Our experiences are both congruent and distinctly separate from similar stories around the world.
