Love, Locs and Liberation was simply awesome. This one woman show brings to life the complexities that we as African American women go through starting from our young years and continuing through our adult years with our hair. She sheds light on the historical background of black women and their hair; and how we often times get caught up in what our hair looks like and if it’s not together, then we are not together. Which isn’t true; we are not defined by our hair, or by what others think we should do to our hair, we are defined by who we say we are. ... full review

This is a Great show performed by a Wonderfully talented actress. The show is not about her hair really, it's about how a young girl navigates her world and how her hair influences that navigation. It's a beautifully heartfelt story that I think anyone from any background can find enlightening.... full review

EDEN JEFFRIES certified reviewer June 08, 2018
Ella uses the journey of black hair from girlhood to womanhood as a vessel in which to capture the complexities of discovering self and cultivating identity while navigating the intricacies of racism, self-deprecation, cultural codes, and empowerment that is the black experience. Love, Locs, & Liberation is a wonderful weaving of humor, celebration, nostalgia, and social commentary. Never a dull moment. You don't need to be black, or a woman to be captured and moved by this story and you SHOULD see it, but if you are black, and a woman, then you damn sure NEED to see it!... full review

A great use of hair as a metaphor for identity and relationships! The characters were amazing and very distinct. I particularly loved Ella's Haitian mom. ... full review
SACHA ELIE certified reviewer June 09, 2018
This show is fun, sincere, and one that everyone can relate too. I laughed, and cried, her accent of her Haitian mother is one for the books, Don't get me started on her acting. She effortlessly went through different characters, Ella gives a tour de force performance. Its no wonder she is a scholarship winner! Excellent show! Go to the show, Go to the show!! ... full review
