A YouTube video featuring the popular hairstyles worn by Black men is going viral.
Hitting YouTube on Tuesday, the latest video, titled “Episode 18: USA Men 2,” features Atlanta-based singer Lester “L2” Shaw with haircuts popular among Black men from the 1910s to today. Styles include the conk from the 50s, an afro from the 70s and a flattop from the 90s.
