Summer '16 Fellow: Acacia Patterson

About Acacia

My Name is Acacia Patterson and I was born in Jamaica. I moved to America when I was four years old with my family and have been here ever since. I am very passionate about natural hair because it is an extension of one's self yet it is neglected.

Acacia's Project: The Truth Behind Natural Hair

Natural Hair is more than just hair, it's a way of life. Through my short documentary I aim to enlighten society about natural hair. In addition, I aim to showcasing self-appreciation, self-love and self-growth.
