If only getting accepted into Princeton, becoming the next Michelle Obama, and getting the guy of your dreams was an easy task! Beautiful Hair is a coming-of-age tale about an academically gifted, African American high school senior named Jamila who runs for Student Body President, as she attempts to improve her academic resume for Princeton. When Jamila finds herself the target of a cruel bully who just so happens to be the most popular girl in school, she is forced to confront the bully, her fears and her deepest insecurities. With an infectious score that fuses hip hop, R&B and pop, Beautiful Hair is sure to inspire, uplift and teach the greatest lesson of all: self-love. It is undeniable!
