Show & Tell: Ashante Dujour

Howard University

May 19, 2021

In her Seedling Series, illustrator Ashante Dujour of Howard University invites us to observe the complex, beautiful relationships in her daily life. This piece depicts four stills of her father cutting her hair, which usually happens two Sundays out of a given month. “It's kind of the perfect display of our relationship,” she says. “The act of cutting hair, especially a Black woman's hair, has always been a very controversial topic. I know people who don’t do it to this day. But for me and my dad, it’s a moment of unspoken love and care.”
