Most of the literature written on the experience of colonized people, proceed from the position of the hegemony of the colonizer. The
exceptions to this, are the writings of the anti-imperialist anti-colonial resistance theorists, such as Franz Fanon. Power Dressing: Headwear
as an Act of Resistance, draws on the traditions of the anti-imperialist school of writing to analyse and develop a narrative that better explains
the objective experiences and actions of a populations living under
neo-colonial practices. The presentation is based on observation gained, through living amongst the Windrush generation and their offspring, settled in the United Kingdom and will consist of a series of images accompanied by a narrative.
