‘Freed From The Secret’: Rep. Ayanna Pressley Opens Up About Living With Alopecia

Rep. Ayanna Pressley appears in a video for The Root, the African American-focused online magazine, in which she reveals her bald head and talks about living with alopecia.

The freshman lawmaker says she felt that it was particularly important for her to speak out about her condition because her hairstyle, Senegalese twists, has become a part of her political brand.
