Students discuss the differences between natural and weave hairstyles from Student Reporting Labs on Vimeo.

The Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush is a magnet high school that is attended by students with a multitude of diverse backgrounds. Due to the differences in background, a discussion about how certain communities wear their hair has proven to be a subject of debate. Our student reporters conducted a series of interviews on a topic of African-American hair to make people socially aware of the aspects of the culture.

This video was produced with mentor support from Lisa Wilk of WHYY.
