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.

“The old woman laughed out loud, unbuttoned her calico shift and let it fall to her ankles. Annabelle kicked free of it, and pulled the pins from her hair. Naked in the moonlight, she whispered his name…“ They thought it was over. The werewolves Joan, Consuela, José and Mark, fought to save Tundra. Now they sit on Topaz’s High Council where they’re feeding the hungry, tackling race riots, rebuilding their world. But a daemon walks their streets by night. He knows about the little girl with the big secret. He knows all about her mirror and of the ancient evil that’s been awakened. A new war has just begun.

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.
