‘Afro-sisters IV’. From an exhibition ‘Herself’ by Mwamba Chikwemba

‘This piece is from the series ‘Afro-sisters’.

The main focus is on a woman named Mulenga Mulenga, who is very confident and proud of her natural African hair.

She says that she has been always encouraged to wear a weave to disguise her Afro-hair; she was told that her natural hair looks unprofessional.

However, despite opinions of others, she is proud of her look and works at a consultancy firm in Lusaka, Zambia.’
