As consumer or beauty shop owner, have you wondered where are the local Beauty Supply Stores owned by African-American’s? Can you purchase quality products on-line? In a Billion dollar industry, where are the profits going? Does any of your money find its way back to your neighborhood? These are questions we all are asking our friends, neighbors and people we know that are in the Black Hair Care business.
We have as our special guest, Ms. Regina Kimbell, producer of My Nappy ROOTS and Founder of NAPPYWOOD weekend Los Angeles. In her own words, “I’m a documentary filmmaker first so it gives me an objective overview of the industry also from a historic perspective.” We will get her perspective on the industry of today along with her opinion as the prognosticator for the future.
You will hear cuts from the Nappy Roots Soundtrack. We’ll get into the facts and fiction of this billion dollar industry that manufactures for, supplying to and servicing African-Americans.
After six years as independent artists and label owners, the group’s latest project, Nappy Dot Org, which stands for Nappy Roots.Organized Noize, a collaboration with the legendary Organized Noize collective, has allowed them to once again approach an album strictly as artists. Early on in the process of conceptualizing and working on this album, the group knew that they were not looking forward to the A&R duties they had been forced to undertake on their previous two independent albums. The tedious task of finding producers, sifting through their music to find something every member of the group could agree on, then making sure the business end of the transaction was properly taken care of was taking too much time away from the creative. So their manager’s suggestion to work on the new album exclusively with Organized Noize – the production camp behind Atlanta’s renowned Dungeon Family- was immediately accepted.

What is African-American History?
Black History month grew out of Negro History Week, which was established in February 1926 by African-American historian Carter G. Woodson, who founded the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History. President Gerald Ford declared February to be "Black History Month" in 1974. African-American history was once viewed by many as vital to black liberation and power.
Here we are 40 years and later and what does this month really mean?
THE PANEL DISCUSS
If her natural hair is treated is she sending a message of needing straight hair to be beautiful and professional?
Can she view her curls as the crowning of a woman and a political statement to reclaim power?
What message are we sending to the up coming generation with hair processing and wearing weaves? Are we saying this is what defines Beauty?

This book, "Nappy Hair" Dr. Carolivia Herron, caused a major controversy. Find out why! "Uncle Mordecai at a family picnic leads an African American call and response praise song of little Brendas nappy hair, which is the kinkiest, nappiest, fuzziest hair on the face of the earth. God in heaven is delighted to have this cute little brown baby girl with the nappiest hair in the world. Dr. Carolivia Herron is an African American Jewish author and educator now living in Washington, DC. Her most well known book, Nappy Hair caused a major controversy in diversity education when a white teacher, Ruth Sherman, was chased out of a school in Queens, New York for teaching this book to her third grade class. Herron is also the author of Thereafter Johnnie, Little Georgia and the Apples, and Always An Olivia, which tells the story of how her Jewish ancestors traveled from Spain to northern Africa to the Georgia Sea Islands. She has written the libretto for The Journey of Phillis Wheatley, and for the opera, Let Freedom Sing: The Story of Marian Anderson which opens March 24, 2011 in Washington, DC. Dr. Herron is a retired professor who taught Comparative Literature and Creative Writing at Harvard University, Mt. Holyoke College, and the College of William and Mary."
