Before the Atlantic Slave Trade, many African societies believed that a person’s spirit resided in his or her hair because it was the closest part of the body to God. “One of the first things slave traders did to their human cargo was shave their head…which to the African was tantamount to erasing one’s identity” (Lori Tharps).
