A Call for Natural Hair Narratives/Stories: The 411 Is Here!

A decision has been made to get our Natural hair Narratives/Stories on in the form of a new and exciting book!  This project emerges out of,  as our courageous sister, ancestor, Fannie Lou Hamer put it being "Sick And Tired of Being Sick and Tired" of the denigration of our natural hair as it grows out of our scalp. As a multi-book author  with a recently released book, I believe there is no reason for us to sit idly by without telling our stories about the beauty and glory of our natural hair.  We must explain to the world, What In the Natural Hair Is Going On  in terms of the negativity regarding our hair.  We will be providing narratives for generations to come. We do not want to leave our readers without solutions, so to counter any negative experiences that individuals may include, per their natural hair narratives/stories, the book will also emphasize ending the shaming, that is perpetrated by others, through discussing solutions to do so.

The information for those of you who want to contribute to this exciting upcoming book by contributing your natural hair narrative/story is below:
