There are these moments in each of our lives that kind of mark who we are — the stories we tell on first dates and at parties, or spend years avoiding in therapy. For Shantae (she/her(s)), these chapters of life are inextricably tied to her hair.

Edges is a seasonal anthology where Shantae invites friends, family and other folks in the Black community to share their "hair x mental health" stories as she unpacks her own (ongoing) identity crisis.
