The International African Arts Festival might need to be renamed the International African Arts Extravaganza announced long time host Adeyemi Bandele at the main stage in Commedore Barry Park, Brooklyn on Saturday. For good reason. The 44th edition of the festival was a spectacular success.
Yesterday Brooklyn College held its 2nd annual Women of Color and Identity Conference in the Gold Room of the Student Center. Men, women, natural, relaxed and weaved heads came together to discuss the topic of Black hair from different angles.
The Women of Color Conference is an annual Brooklyn College event that opens a dialog on social issues important to Black women. Experts are invited to discuss topics like media representation and self esteem with the goal to help graduating students get a deeper understanding of the issues at hand and to send a positive message. This year’s topic is natural hair themed “Weaving Through the Kinks.”
Do you have what it takes to represent diversity and beauty on the runway? If so Fashion Week Brooklyn RUNWAY wants to see you in action!
I’m deciding to do the big chop, are their any salons you could suggest and prices?
