Interview with Karima Jordon
QUESTION 3
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Could you tell the story of wearing your first Afro at the Halloween party. Just, just start from the beginning.

KARIMA JORDON:

Well, we had a Halloween party and I wanted to come as a African American or African really. And, ah, my mother really opposed that because that meant I had to wear an Afro. So, in order for me to wear an Afro, I had to have shorter hair. So I took the curl, the straightening curl and fired it up to as hot as it can get and just brushed it all over my head and it all fell off and I washed it and instant Afro. It didn't look great but it was an Afro. I didn't care.
