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."

Black Heritage: Celebrating Black History Month,Part 1- I spent time in the homes of two succesful southern black families. i wanted to understand a few things. I listened. I wanted to see if I could experience a few things through their eyes then get their freshest thoughts on how far we've come, where we are now, and where we're headed?
I expected to be broadened and deepened; I didn't expect to be surprised. Perhaps, you will be too. Meet the Marina's and the Price's. And a few women with nappy hair.

After being in the beauty industry for 24 years I felt compelled to give my clients more than a beautiful head of hair. I have come into to contact with many of women with issues due to medical problems, dieting, exercise, medication, stress, hormones, metabolism and hydration. So over 10 years ago I began to research how I can help these women with their hair. I realized that every woman is not going to come into the salon with a beautiful healthy head of hair.
As my life seemed to unravel and research progressed it seems as though I had begun need this information for me and that made my research even more intense. I could have never imagined that how much all these things that effects our everyday lives also affect our hair. ‘
As I began to share with my clients and counsel them about their hair, they had never heard these things before. They stated they had never been asked these things by a stylist. Some even asked me what that has to do with my hair. They follow the instructions and saw major results in their hair.
Women who had bald spots for years, hair grew back. Women, who said their hair would never grow, now have hair. Women who said their hair grow to a certain length and break off is the longest it’s ever been before.
I knew that I had to share this information with the world because it was too important to keep it to myself.
A woman is only as beautiful as she feels from the inside out, but sometimes she recognizes an attribute from the outside. Her hair is one of those attributes. A woman’s hair is an extension of the very essence of sensuality. It makes her feel a certain way. When her hair is sick she is too. She’s just not feeling quite herself and then she gets her hair done and now she is a new person.

Sacred Beauty embraces the divine aesthetic of harmony within and without. It offers us a healthy alternative—the way of natural beauty to enhance our divine loveliness. Sacred Beauty brings harmony to every aspect of one’s life through Khamitic etiquette, an ancient form of grace and beauty expressed through the Khamitic Nubian spiritual path. It will
“cosmically attune you to holistic dress as you learn to unfold into a beautiful attitude filled with a rainbow of colors.
Sacred Beauty rules the heart center. Without Sacred Beauty, there is only artificial beauty: applications for skin, hair, breasts, lips, and eyes, all of which cause toxic shock.
Developing your Sacred Beauty helps to create devotion to a divine, beautiful life. The awakening of the Gateway of Sacred Beauty opens the eye of divine aesthetic harmony and rids us of a mundane vision of the world. It allows us to transform our world and everything in it for the good and the beauty of humanity. This Gateway attunes us to the unlimited possibilities of divine beauty as a healing balm.
Gateway 4: Sacred Beauty will help you eliminate Sacred Beauty blockages in the Body Temple: boils, skin eruptions, deformities, eczema, baldness, psoriasis, circulation problems, emotional instability, repressed love, heart problems, and problems in love affairs. The awakening of the Sacred Beauty within will assist us in the elimination of artificial and toxic chemicals so often used on our skin and hair.
Spiritual exercises of ascension are to be performed daily for seven days, the number for the spirit

SPECIAL HOLIDAY EDITION: Whether you love the Holiday Season or dread it, it tends to be filled with lots of extra 'hustle and bustle', spending time with family, gift giving (Which includes, who wants what? And can I really afford this?) and it's a time that's notorious for more people experiencing depression. So how do you make it through this 'wonderful time of the year' with your sanity in tact? I've invited my friend, Melanie Foote-Davis, who is a Life Coach, Women's Advocate and 'Self-Love' promoter, to join us and share her perspective. In addition to her current profession, she was the former Salon Manager and Hair Designer for Fabulous Finishes Salon and Day Spa and she comes from a very large family and has lots of experience and tips for navigating the holidays with lots of love and without breaking the bank. Take a moment to listen (and laugh) with me and Melanie and prepare for your mind and spirit to be renewed!

I'll play a 5 minute drum meditation for stress relaease and quieting the mind- for some of you
Every day, you make choices about what you will eat, what products you will put on your skin and in your hair, and what products you will use to clean your home and possessions. Many choices are already made for us, by government agencies, food and drug companies, and technology based organizations. We are assaulted on every side with challenges unique to our generation: health and well-being issues created by toxic food, air, and water, and electropollution, which increases daily.
It's a fact: We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto.
So how do we know which choices are best for us and our familes? Where do we start to separate out marketing ploys from reality, and deception from truth? It begins with the choice to take back responsibility for our health, and to get familiar with our body's "User Guide" - our Creator's original design and plan for our bodies.
Join Sandy Bloomfield as she explores today's most important health concerns, and gathers and presents information from some of the best natural resources available to offer choices to all who value their physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Just because this planet has an expiration date doesn't mean you have to get sick along with it! Choose to live the adundant life, starting now!
