People think that they can just come up to us and
Touch our hair because it’s different
Black peoples hair is important
It let us out of slavery
It created a bond between mother and daughter
Barber and black men unite
Made us a stronger people
Wig, braids, cornrows, natural, straightened
Hair is not just something we can feel and touch
It lets us express how we are feeling
The hair can break off when our body is attacking us or our minds are not fully there
Hair brings us together as black people
It brings us pride when we stand alone
It unities us when we stand together
Our history is imbedded in every curl no matter the pattern.
Again let me remind you…
PLEASE DONT TOUCH IT!
We are not petting zoos!
