John Oliver on hair


John Oliver did a segmnent on his Last Week Tonight programme about hair, and the unique pressures placed on Black and African American people. I feel ashamed to admit that I was completely oblivious to all of this. Which now has me thinking what else I take for granted, or assume, or don’t realise.

Play Hair: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

Those outside the US might need to use a VPN to watch it, but please do if you can, it’s worth it.

As an aside, Clara and I saw John Oliver when he did a standup show at the State Theatre in Sydney. He was witty and lovely, exactly what we hoped!
