Applause October 14: Black Hair, Ruth Carter

Season 24 Episode 3 | 26m 46s

We comb through an exhibit at the Kent State University Museum that looks at the history and art of African-American “hair.” And we look at the fashions of Academy Award winning costume designer Ruth Carter. Plus, we stop by an exhibit inspired by everyday caution signs used as a way of approaching some difficult topics.

Aired: 10/14/21
