It's finally ready!

After a year and a bit of talking about it >here<, I'm very excited to say that the Origins Of The Afro Comb exhibition, officially opens next week on Tuesday 2nd July at the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge.
I'm so proud to have been a part of this project.
My official invites to the Preview & a V.I.P dinner with the Museum's
Director Tim Knox, afterward. #StomachButterflies
The exhibition explores the story of the Afro comb, all the way from Africa 6,000 years ago, right across the diaspora and into the present day.

As well as the artifacts in the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Artist Michael McMillan has created My Hair: Black Culture Style & Politics, an art installation inside the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropolgy.
As it's the museums' main feature this year, it will run from July (2nd) all the way through to November (3rd), which should give you more than enough time to see it.
Why not make a day of it this summer?

Make sure you go down, check it out and share your thoughts and even your own "hairstories".
Who knows, if enough people spread the word maybe we could bring the exhibition to the V&A next year? Just a thought.
