Read the best motivational quotes by MLK that we should all aspire to live up to. Let’s remember the point of this holiday and proceed with love and respect.
There is one major problem with the natural hair movement. Whether it was an unwitting happenstance or a conscious effort by some, the natural hair movement has created a monolithic view of what it means to be natural.

Another reason why I love this girl! Lupita Nyong’o is doing the most in promoting natural hair and loving oneself. Such a burden shouldn’t fall on one set of shoulders, but if it had to, I’m certainly glad it was hers! And kudos to Sesame Street for stepping in the right direction. Not only in this instance, but also in its previous attempt of promoting self love for African American hair. Well done to all. Keep the love flowing! Peace, Love, and Live Life Full, P.A.
