The power of identity and understanding oneself can lead to connecting and understanding other people. Hair is a powerful part of the way Black people view and see themselves. 1. Start within to embrace all parts of who you are. 2. Take an active role in learning your history and others’ history. 3. Take action and be vocal about standing up for others and fully expressing who you are.
Snippet from Judy:
“Black Americans used to irritate and annoy me. I mean, get over yourself. Slavery was almost 400 years ago. Move on.” I used to think this way, but after I started reading and learning, I realized if I did not embrace who I was, I was not going to move forward in life.
