"Black Curls and Their Stories Behind Them," represents Black people as self-empowered individuals of their Black identity and hair. The photo project goals are to eliminate stereotypes, to show Black people in their individuality, and to encourage visibility for Black realities. The photo project seeks to give answers to the following questions: Where do we come from? Where are we going and where are we currently with biographies of Black people in Germany and Switzerland? It is also about the connection between community care, vulnerability and being Black in white supremacist society.
