Everyday Revolutionary

We are all Revolutionaries...


whether we see it or not, to see we must open our eyes to our greatness.... and oh what great things we will see.

Ask me a Question

then we must redefine and reassess what does… how many people can say they came from such survivors… innovators… they did not go to africa to get slaves… they went to get africans. and who can say that any other people would have survived what has happened to us.

natural hair. its more than just a trend.

Its been a moment since i’ve written, instead of reblogged and allow me to apologize for that. I have been substantially busy with the new job at a youth center and community organizing. BUT i digress (obviously) so allow me to address the title. Natural hair is more than just a new trend.

its the rebirth of small black business

its the reclamation of our health (have you SEEN the shit they put in perms??)

its the beginning of love for self. at its rawest, most untouched form

it is the reclamation of the hair industry (black hair is a multi BILLION dollar industry which black business has been continuously pushed out of)

I went natural because it was healthier to do so. nothing that burns your scalp or can dissolve aluminum cans should be slathered on your skin for any reason. but i’ve continued to stay natural because fuck it, lets face it, if i want to change my hair texture to something less black then i must admit to myself that i ultimately value being less outwardly black than being what i was born. a wonderful black woman. yes, i own a flat iron. no, i do not depend on that fucking thing. it damages my hair. and shit, men like it when a woman can go exercise or get caught in the rain.

its liberating. its self love. its healthy living. its Ujamaa. 

Go natural.

Beautiful. Blessings.
