THE NEXT CHAPTER

Suited and tailored to lead, they are dark-skinned, they are head-covered, they are striding, they are swaying, they are spitting bars, running laps, making covers, shooting hoops, setting trends, writing scripts and are here to stay, no longer at the back. It doesn’t matter what state the world is in, these young creatives are determined to make their mark, with a plea that nothing should come in between you and your success especially as children of immigrants.

For Black women the ‘choice’ to wear their hair in its natural form is not always so simple. There are a number of factors we are faced with daily and as a result, subconsciously that ‘choice’ can get distorted or even taken away. Both western society and the Black community play a part in limiting Black women.
