Hair Peace: A Natural Hair Anthem10:21 PM
This video was passed onto me via Twitter and I just had to share it with you guys real quick before I fall asleep and forget lol! Here's the content description (copied from YouTube)...
Essence China brings to you, HAIR PEACE. An original spoken word written by Essence & starring Essence. HAIR PEACE comes as not just education, it serves an anthem for natural haired women and men everywhere.
This spoken word speaks to the simple fact: That loving your natural hair, is an essential part in loving yourself, and going against the norm that a euro-centric society has created for us as African Americans. HAIR PEACE is about loving yourself, and being at PEACE with who you are.
This video was cultivated, directed and edited by Shanice ' Malakai' Johnson.
Very powerful and well put together video! However, I myself don't feel that by wearing my natural hair makes me any more real or closer to my roots than those who don't.
