The series, “Don’t Touch My Crown,” follows the notion of Black creative expression within the gaze of white America. The title of this project is based solely on the experience Black women face within white society each and every day. Oftentimes, white people don’t seem to comprehend boundaries when it comes to the Black body and far too many times will feel the need to violate personal space because they are fascinated by the body's hair. Black women should not feel judged nor scrutinized on the self-expression of their hair. Their hair should not be the center of amusement. It is their crown and is a part of their body therefore should not be touched.
