It’s taken me 30 years to get here.

To love every part of me.

My hair. My crown. I hated it until now.

What changed? I learned the truth. The power–the freedom, the connection to Africa my hair gifts to me.

With each kink, coil, and curl, the feeling of confidence grew more and more.

I discovered another part of me. A part that makes me feel tribal; which is in my blood.

This is my Africa showing, this is the land I’m truly from.

You don’t accept me but I stand tall anyway.

I can’t help it. It’s just that #blackgirlmagic
