Amsterdam 2014, Learn & Love Your Hair (LLYH) Event by Taren Guy - Meechy Monroe, Taren Guy & Vaughn Monroe.
I didn’t get to talk to Taren that much, but I have to say that the Monroe sisters were really inspiring, down to earth and genuinely interested.
i love love love love the monroe sisters
Boston with it.
black women’s natural hair is the most versatile hair on this planet
there are things we can do with our hair that no amount of gel can do for other folk
afro textured hair comes in so many textures
every kink coil and curl is precious
a man that can’t appreciate the glory that is black women’s hair
especially one who is black and has black hair too
isn’t worth the piss i took this morning
Its ok to be a victim.
I am really tired of this alpha mentality of “stop being a victim” bullshit we crank out.
It. Is. Absofuckinlutely OKAY TO BE A VICTIM
Especially in a system that not only rewards abusers, but often put those abusers in positions of power
Victims have the right to cope in their own fashion, on their own time.
Fam say it louder cuz I don’t think we fuckin hear it
Never Too Late: 72-Year-Old Graduates College!
Even though Van McKellar (pictured) made the decision to drop out of high school in 1956, after he was home-schooled with his daughter five years ago, he decided to enroll at the Metropolitan State College of Denver. Now, at 72-years-young, McKellar has graduated from the school and wants to serve as a shining example to others that it is never too late to get an education.
McKellar is hoping that all of the hard work he put in to earning his degree will inspire his children to go to the school, “Hey, if Dad can go to college, then I can go to college.” McKellar is also hoping that his brave educational move will encourage other young people to shoot for the stars.
Mr. McKellar earned an African-American studies major and History minor degree with high honors.
GOD YES!!!!!! EXCELLENCE!!
