JANEECE FREEMAN CLARK
She is an amazing producer, director, and artist educator. In 2015, she confounded Vanguard Theatre Company (within the company there’s a mentorship program she works with)
Urinetown on Broadway
Started her natural hair journey in college and transitioning was very challenging for her because of the thickness of her hair. Braids were a go to during this transition period.
It took her about 2 years and a ton of patience to go fully natural and remove past damage.
Being natural was very important to Janeece so that her children could grow up with the normalcy of natural hair!
Talks about some sort of “Hair Program” within other theatre programs to teach about hair prep and wig prep for the stage!
Important conversation about integrating black hair care and education into schools and programs. Is there a black women’s guide to hair care on the big stage?
