‘Going Natural’ Requires Lots of Help

I was pleasantly surprised to see today’s New York Times article on the Team Natural Hair movement. To quote Florence the maid, from the first episode of The Jeffersons as she notices how wealthy Louise and Helen are, “How come we overcame and no one told me?” HI-LARIOUS!

Anyway, since I’m on that natural train, I could relate to the ladies profiled in the article and can co-sign on a number of the difficulties they’ve noted.

Also nice is seeing one of my favorite sites, CurlyNikki.com, featured.

The article for your enjoyment.

About mmichellederosier

As a freelancer, I have written for online and print publications with a focus on the shared and distinct American experience of Black immigrants and Black Americans. As a member of the Haitian diaspora (made in Haiti and bred in Brooklyn), I'm committed to snatching back the Haitian narrative. I want to present an assortment of unique Haitian experiences that are overlooked in mainstream conversations. It's important to show that our life stories can be painful, yes, but also brilliant, interesting, quirky and fun. I'm starting with the Happy Harper children's series. The first book forthcoming 2019. Also, forthcoming 2019 is my first book, Ruby Bridges: Get to Know the Girl Who Took a Stand for Education. This is part of Capstone's People You Should Know series for 3rd and 4th graders. Professionally and personally, I am driven to ensure that youth and women of color with limited resources have access to opportunities for success and the support system to leverage them. I love partnering with others to do the same. I have 12 years demonstrated experience successfully engaging diverse communities of individual volunteers and teachers, schools, districts, non-profits and community partners, as well as corporate donors.
