You Can Touch My Hair?

You Can Touch My Hair is a controversial public art exhibit held in New York City’s Union Square last Thursday afternoon that gave people an open invitation to touch different textures of African-American women’s hair. Antonia Opiah created the exhibit to "take one for the team" and further explore the “tactile fascination with Black hair.”
