”Black Panther” literally ventures into lands unknown ― the storied, albeit fictitious African nation of Wakanda and all its trappings. But Wakanda’s dress and decoration did not appear out of the ether.⠀
⠀
They’re not simply retreads of traditional African architecture, garb and hairstyling, but instead the calculated vision of the film’s production team, who were tasked with constructing the aesthetics of a black future. ⠀
⠀
Hairstylist Camille Friend was vital to the success of this project ― essential to creating a world in which black hair is assertive and unbound by restrictive notions of respectability. ⠀
⠀
HuffPost spoke with Friend about how she prepared for styling the “Black Panther” cast, the challenges she faced along the way and the future of black hair.⠀
⠀
Friend: "I used a lot of reference books, especially books about Africa. Basically I started with resource books, looking at African books and just looking at different tribes and looking at the hair textures, looking at the clothes, looking at the textiles, even looking at the terrain of the country and the color of the earth. All of those things, really, are interesting to me, and even looking at different Eskimos and different Indian cultures — just looking globally at different tribal looks. That’s what I started with."⠀

As tearful survivors of the Parkland school shooting watched, the Republican-led Florida House of Representatives refused to discuss a ban on assault weapons.⠀
⠀
Later in the day, many of the same lawmakers discussed at length a bill that declares porn a public health risk. The bill ― which calls for improved “education, research and policy changes to protect Floridians, especially teenagers, from pornography” — was approved by a voice vote, reported the Tampa Bay Times.⠀
⠀
“Has anyone had to bury their child because of pornography?” asked Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith (D), who sponsored the legislation seeking to ban assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines. ⠀
⠀
Rep. Kionne McGhee (D), tried to bring the gun control bill to the floor, but failed in a 36-71 party-line vote.⠀
