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.

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
