Explores how and why black women in places as far-flung as New York, Atlanta, London, and Johannesburg incorporated style and beauty culture into their activism. Focusing on the emergence of the ?soul style? movement – represented in clothing, jewelry, hairstyles, and more – Liberated Threads shows that black women’s fashion choices became galvanizing symbols of gender and political liberation.
