“The Negro’s hair has more sense than the Negro. After two or three weeks under the conks and the hot comb applications, the hair says, ‘To hell with this. I am going back to Africa.’ and it goes back to its natural state. The Negro has to go through the conk and hot comb all over again.” – Carlos Cooks (1913-1966), Afro-Dominican Black Nationalist activist.
