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.
