What they say about ‘Hair Apparent – a voyage around my roots’ 

“Inspirational and uplifting. I came away with the music and images running through my head on a loop. It opens up so many conversations and gives us so much to think about.”
Caraline Gilroy
Audience Member at public presentation in The Mercer Gallery, Harrogate

“I was struck by the originality and insight of the piece. This quirky, sideways look at her experiences associated with her identity and race cleverly linked to the versatility and resilience of her own hair over the years is informative and certainly makes one pause for thought.”
Rodney Wigham
Audience Member at public presentation in The Mercer Gallery, Harrogate

“Clever lady. A whirlwind tour of wonderful insights and information. Only problem was the voyage ended too soon. When’s the next trip?!”
Canon Michael Glanville-Smith
Audience member at private presentation

“I just wanted to say how very much I enjoyed the presentation. Using your hair as a vehicle to symbolise both social oppression and an embodiment of expression, love, growth and enlightenment was so fascinating and personal…. the use of accompanying music brought to life the fashion, music and social context of the decades and countries you explored.”
Ruth Shillitoe
HR Administrator, College of Policing, CPD Diversity Training Event

“It goes without saying how much I enjoyed your presentation yesterday. What I liked about it was the wonderful story you wove into important issues not just about racism but about being an individual and allowing people to feel confident about who they are… Thank you for sharing your experience with us.”
Nick Turnbull
Technical Officer, College of Policing, CPD Diversity Training Event

“I thought it was funny and moving in places but also a reminder that despite how far we’ve come as a diverse society since your experience as a child, there’s still some way to go. “
Louise Meade
Head of Selection and Assessment, College of Policing, CPD Diversity Training Event

“I was very interested in hearing about your time in India, Italy and America, you left me wanting to hear so much more. I look forward to the next chapter.”
Maggie Humble

“I loved it. The personal experiences you shared were presented in an amusing, light-hearted, yet serious and sensitive way. Your choice of music and images were also great and really helped to set the scene.”
Helen Oates
