THEN: Approaching the years of the Civil War and in response to Northern abolitionism, Southern racist propaganda created the Mammy stereotype as a pro-slavery archetype to display Black women as happy and complacent in their condition as chattel slaves. The red handkerchief on her head was her signature.

NOW: Current day head wraps can be read as resistance to White beauty standards. They are popular in fashion and protective styling, also a sign of modesty, royalty, and pride in African heritage.
