George Alexander discusses his book, “Queens.” He begins by explaining that the book is a collection of photo essays. He talks about how his grandmother had a hair salon, and growing up he would spend a lot of time there and understood the hairdressing culture of African Americans. He talks about the confidence of women who wear Afros. He lists several styles of traditional hairdressing such as braids, dreadlocks, straightened or processed hair, and even wearing a shaved head. Alexander lists several stories from the book and describes each woman’s hair decision. He ends the interview by talking about a new photo essay book he is working on.
