    Ms.P Chats It Up With Nappy Roots

    in Entertainment

    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.

    in Books

    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."
