In honor of Black Hairstory Month, we are excited to share the film, "My Nappy Roots" with the Nappturalite Radio audience. Created by filmmakers, Regina Kimbell & Jay Blumeke, My Nappy ROOTS: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage, an edutainment documentary, takes an unparalleled look at how black hair is used as a prism through which to look at cultural, societal, and political issues in the African American community over time.
The film reveals the significance and pride of African hairstyles prior to the first arrival of enslaved Africans to America, where the broader struggle of Black people began. This cultural and social struggle created the rise of the first great Black entrepreneurs and the billion dollar ethnic hair care industry-that exist today.
You don't want to miss the chance to interact with Regina, cast members, Queen Sy and Shirlena Allen, and a surprise celebrity guest from the movie!
We also giving away curl cloths from this week's giveaway sponsor, Curls Like Us!
