Caprece Jackson Takes Off Her Wig and Takes on Racism, What's Underneath
Caprece Jackson Takes Off Her Wig and Takes on Racism

At age 64, Caprece Jackson uses her style as armor and her wigs as helmets in a war to open doors that have been closed to her because of the color of her skin. Everyday, she is on the frontlines fighting against oppression, and hopes to become a portal for other women of color to be free to just “be.” In this powerful episode, Caprece discusses reconnecting to her natural hair and takes a cathartic step towards self-acceptance by taking off her go-to wig, which has provided her entry to jobs and status, for the first time in public.
