Brittany Peacock of
returned for a second segment to read one of the recommended books to be a part of the education process of all family members about racial issues and inequality. In this segment, Peacock does a reading of a sweet book for kids of all ages, "Hair Love".
"Hair Love" was originally a 2019 American animated short film written and directed by Matthew A. Cherry. Earlier this year, the movie won an Academy Award for "Best Animated Short Film".
It follows the story of a man who must do his daughter's hair for the first time, and it features Issa Rae as a voice of the mother. Some clips of the animation are shown during this PSL segment.
The film was adapted into this children's book, written by Cherry and illustrated by artist Vashti Harrison. The book was on the New York Times Book Review Children's Best Sellers list following its release in May of 2019.
