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.
My crown is my glory.
Thick locs tell a story.
From the roots to the tip you can get to know me.
I’ve learned the beauty of these napps
And through my care I found myself perhaps.
Wearing my hair in locs has taught me many things but the one I love most is stay true to who you are, the natural you. Throughout our lives we are told to be a certain way in order to be perceived as beautiful.
