In this unique former display, members of Liverpool's own Black community took visitors through the history of Black hair, strand by strand, and described how their hair has affected their lives.
The display explored how Black hair styles have evolved and how they reflect wider social change and political movements. From dreads to afros, high tops to weaves - all are statements of Black attitude, pride and identity.
Explore the key periods that are highlighted in the display.
Poets and spoken word artists respond to the key themes in HAIR.
