Abstract

This study focused on the lived experiences of African American women who were emerging adults, ages 18 to 25, during the Civil Rights Movement period of 1960 to 1974. The purpose of this study was to discover how becoming an adult during the time of the Civil Rights Movement impacted the life-long hair decisions of these African American women’s lives.
