This chapter provides the theoretical and methodological framework for the book. We show how Black women’s appearance is not just a personal decision—it also has political implications. The chapter argues for the importance of contextualizing Black women’s bodies as part of their political experiences, and it provides a broad overview of the book.

Keywords:   intersectionality, Eurocentric beauty norms, Black women political elites, hair, skin tone
