Plot Summary

Thirteen year-old Zora Howard's poem "Bi-racial Hair" serves as the thread for this satirical look at the racal tensions young African Americans of mixed ethnic background face. Weaving fictional re-enactments with a live spoken word performance by Zora, the film illustrates everything from Zora's comedic rant about styling her hair to more serious issues of identity and belonging, 150 years after the abolishment of slavery.
