I Love My Locs!

(Image found on Pinterest)

I’ve been caring for my natural dreadlocks for two years. They were down to the small of my back!

I went in the other day to have them professionally tended and touched up by a hairstylist, who was referred by a lovely young mother who was visiting the area with her husband and two small children. Five inches of hair was trimmed off, so now my ‘locs are just past my scapulae. No worries, though. By this time next year, they just might be long enough to touch the top of my butt.

That, to me, is the definition of “good” hair. If it is on your head and grows well with good care, then you have “good” hair!

It always feels good to get pampered – I recommend a “beauty” day once in a while. Yes, men, this applies to you all as well.

Congratulations, Serena: It’s A Girl!

I’d originally considered re-blogging a post containing some lovely nature photographs today, but this bit of news that I happened across is worth reporting! Tennis superstar Serena Williams and her partner / fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, welcomed a baby girl into the world on 1 September. From BBC News:

Tennis star Serena Williams has given birth to a baby girl at a clinic in Florida.

Williams, 35, whose partner is Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, was admitted to the St Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach on Wednesday. The 23-time Grand Slam winner said last month she was planning to return to tennis for the Australian Open in January.

Congratulations have been pouring in from sports stars and celebrities. News of the birth came as her sister Venus prepared to go out on court at the US Open.

“Obviously I’m super-excited,” Venus said. “Words can’t describe it.” The couple are yet to confirm the birth themselves but Serena’s coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, tweeted: “I am so happy for you and I feel your emotion.”

He added: “Btw … I wish you a speedy recovery… we have a lot of work ahead of us.” Serena admitted she had revealed her pregnancy to the world in April by accident, after mistakenly uploading a photograph on Snapchat. She won the Australian Open title this January while newly pregnant, and in an article in Vogue last month she said she wanted to defend her title.

“It’s the most outrageous plan,” she said. “I just want to put that out there. That’s, like, three months after I give birth.” In June she appeared in a nude cover photo for Vanity Fair, saying: “I don’t know what to do with a baby.” The news has delighted the tennis world, with Rafa Nadal among the first to tweet his congratulations.

Congratulations to Serena and Alexis – all the best to you and your new little one! Blessed be.

BGR 2017: Celebration in Pictures!

The Black Girls Rock 2017 celebration took place on Saturday, 5 August, but you wouldn’t know it unless you had marked the schedule on your respective calendars! I found little coverage and virtually no articles about this event, but I can’t say that I’m surprised – par for the course, sad to say.

In light of that, here are a few pictures with some positive, uplifting quotes for those of us who are overlooked and under-represented on a daily basis!

Happy Belated Birthday, Barack Obama!

I’ll let the title speak for itself, along with the following pictures. He just turned 56, but finding current birthday photos was difficult, to say the least!

Procter & Gamble Releases Powerful Video “The Talk” to Increase Awareness Around Bias as Part of “My Black is Beautiful” Campaign

This…this, right here. Very timely, and very much needed!

GOOD BLACK NEWS

A new video released Monday titled “The Talk” compellingly tackles the impact of racial bias through the lens of black parents in America. The video ― which was released by My Black Is Beautiful, a beauty brand owned by Procter & Gamble ― is a powerful two-minute clip that explores racial bias by depicting some of the burdens placed on parents of black children, who are challenged with having necessary but difficult discussions with their children about their survival and self-esteem.

The video follows several black parents who have talks with their children about the ways in which their skin color can affect how they are perceived and treated by others. In one scenario, a mom asks her son if he has his ID before heading to practice, in case he is stopped by police. In another…
