In a time when Black children are being rejected in schools because of their natural hairstyles, an exhibition like Black Follicles Matter is even more important. The colorful portraits from Afros to Dreadlocks, from Twists to Cornrows, reveal a shared history that people all over the world can relate to.
Going-Natural.com presents Black Follicles Matter, a unique collection of beautiful Natural Hairstyles that challenge the stereotypical ideas of Black Hair. The exhibition opens the first day of Black History Month on February 1st at 7 PM at the Temple of Illumination located at 138 St. James Place in Brooklyn, NY.
More than 20 Black owned companies joined forces with going- natural.com for an unprecedented Black History Giveaway. From hair care products to fashionable clever t-shirts, from magazines to cup cakes, these companies are serious about expanding their clientele by standing out in the growing billion dollar online industry.
BlackFollicles.com is the solution to the fast growing demand for natural hair care products that brick and mortar stores can’t seem to meet. Sparked by the internet revolution and fueled by social media, the Black natural hair care industry has developed into such a thriving $500 million market that a company like Bain Capital has become an early investor.*
