Abstract :
Investigates the self-assembly headtie as one of the few pieces of apparel worn by Black women throughout the African diaspora that can be traced back to their African cultural heritage from the mid-18th c., and which has been in use continuously through to the present. Focuses on the relationship between young Black British women of Jamaican descent and the headtie they wore during the 1970s. Considers how this relationship was simultaneously affected by Black British women's social values and cultural identity, which was shaped by their existence in Britain, and the transnational influence of African-Americans. As part of their feminist discourse, Black British women used the headtie to identify themselves as 'Womanist', to be seen and taken seriously. ;
