Melissa Harris-Perry and guests discuss the business of natural hair

From MadameNoire.com: If you haven’t had a chance to check out Melissa Harris-Perry’s weekend show on MSNBC you really should because she’s putting the issues of the black community, and black women in particular, on the map in a major way.

This Sunday, the Princeton professor invited actress Nicole Ari Parker, Curly Nikki blogger Nikki Walton, University of Pennsylvania professor Anthea Butler, and cultural critic Joan Morgan to have a candid discussion about the natural hair boom, which has sent relaxer sales on the decline since 2007. The women also talked about why black hair in general is a $185 billion business[.] I love that Nicole Ari Parker laid the truth behind that figure right out on the line.
