The Sixties

The Sixties

The Sixties A current of change was rippling through America in the 60s.  It was TV and technicolor; it was MLK and JFK; it was Civil Rights, anti-war and a time for the young to be engaged in politics.  For African Americans specifically,  it was the time to embrace what was natural to us: the Afro.

A current of change was rippling through America in the 60s.  It was TV and technicolor; it was MLK and JFK; it was Civil Rights, anti-war and a time for the young to be engaged in politics.  For African Americans specifically,  it was the time to embrace what was natural to us: the Afro.  I love that we've been embracing it again.  I truly hope it doesn't become a relic of popular culture again, for some things just shouldn't be buried. 

I believe that current of change is emerging once again, given the presidential campaigns that are taking place.  I find that Barack Obama, who was born in the 60s, will bring about the most change, which is why I've been volunteering for his presidential campaign.  You can volunteer too at my.barackobama.com.  I wanted this Afro challenge to evoke that vibrant, technicolor spirit that is energizing many Americans–especially the young voters.

I'm fired up and ready to go. We've taken the afro back, and it's time to take our country back!
