Transition (2012)

In April of 2012, The New York Times commissioned Zina Saro-Wiwa to make a short film for their Op-Docs series. The subject in question was the most recent popularity surge and articulation of the Natural Hair Movement among black women. The resulting film, Transition, published on 31st May 2012, quickly went viral and was one of the most viewed online films published that week by The New York Times to-date. Transition has been acquired by the Houston Museum of African American Culture.
