I had the honor of being a panelist at the 2016 Philadelphia Natural Hair Show! The topic was Black Women & The Perception of Beauty within Media! Boy, was it a lively discussion! Colorism, texture discrimination, weaves vs natural hair were some of the topics that got the naturalista’s charged up!
The discussion was the inspiration for my video 5 Clap Backs for Weave Haters. I wanted to push the message that no one is less natural for wearing weave, which was a misconception during the panel.
After the panel I dived right into the festivities! The Philadelphia Hair Show was packed with vendors selling African print clothing, black owned hair care products and natural textured hair companies. I was in heaven!
