Hear Dr. Cheryl Thompson reveal and explain the role local black community media has played in the promotion of African American-owned beauty products; how the segmentation of beauty culture happened in Canada; and how black beauty culture, which was generally seen as a small niche market before the 1970s, entered Canada's mainstream. Cheryl will discuss these topics in conversation with Chaka V. Grier, arts and culture journalist.
