In the journal I reference: Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America by Ayana Byrd and Lori Tharps of My American Melting Pot and a piece called Beauty Whitewashed: How White Ideals Exclude Women of Color on the site Beauty Redefined. I also talk about this Colorlines piece by Ayana Byrd about Gabourey Sidibe's Elle cover last year.
Finally, I couldn't find that Watch What Happens live clip with Ellen Barkin and NeNe Leakes that I mentioned. It's out there somewhere on-demand perhaps. Bravo will probably repeat the episode at some point as well.
