Updated....Video: Nappy Heads Unite11:01 AM
I spotted this vid link in my timeline yesterday and just a few moments ago had the chance to watch it. In a nutshell, it captures the nervous, anxious moments before and during one's Big Chop. Videos like this make me regret that I didn't capture my BC on film lol...it's so well put together! The natural newbie also talks about her families reaction to her choice to go natural. At the mark 3 minute mark narrator/poet Steven Russell recites "Nappy Heads Unite". It's a powerful poem and I would love to hear all of your views on it! What was your reason(s) for going natural? Was self hate ever a factor when you used to relax?
**I contacted the owner of the Nappy Heads Unite video @Scooba576, and learned that the woman at the end of the clip is Kathleen Neal Cleaver. Member of the Black Panther Party at one their gatherings is where that recording took place, here's another video I found with various clips from party members HERE. Learn more about this accomplished woman HERE! Below are a few images of her and gorgeous afro!
S/O to @Scooba576 for the info :)
