I absolutely never read the newspaper; however, on Thursday, July 21, 2011 I did just that.

While thumbing through the Chicago Sun-Times Newspaper on that day, I was guided to a very thought provoking article (page 21), entitled "Musings on black women's hair".  Written by John W. Fountain, the article showcases (as the author puts it), the "weave explosion" that seems to have taken over our black women and children.  He notes that, even though the typical response to this inquiry is that 'it is simply a matter of choice'; he (as do we) still wonders if this event does not have a much deeper, more insidious, roots; with consequences and implications that go beyond what the eyes can see.

Please join us for what is sure to be a very provocative, insightful discussion, and with John using words such as "Un-be-weave-able", it's bound to be fun as well.  Thanks for tuning in.
