National Headwrap Day

image

Last week, I started my loc journey for the second time. Since then, I’ve rebuilt my scarf collection and have embraced the tradition of headwrapping. There’s such an honor and a feeling of connection to my African antecedents when I’m wrapped. It feels as though they and God are embracing me gently. So, today being the day that we celebrate the tradition, I wish everyone who wraps in honor of culture, faith, or fashion a beautiful day!

Bring Back Our Girls

20140502-193030.jpg

Two weeks ago, 234 Nigerian girls were kidnapped while attending classes at school. They have been sold into “slave marriages” for $12 each and are being raped and battered daily.

PLEASE sign the petition to force the Nigerian president to get these girls back home to their families where they belong. PLEASE imagine if your daugter, sister, niece, etc. were taken from school and sold. PLEASE click the link below and sign.
