Female slaves were forced to wear headwraps because white women were jealous
Born into slavery, then reclaimed by black women, the headwrap is now a celebrated expression of style and identity

... In her article “The African American Woman’s Headwrap: Unwinding the Symbols,” historian Helen Bradley Gabriel explains that both the symbolism and functions of the headwrap “acquired a paradox of meaning” that could have been created only in “the crucible of American slavery and its aftermath.”
