I Just Love My Nappy Roots!

I thought this article, courtesy of Black America Web (.com), was very interesting, especially since I have sported natural hair for coming up on a decade now. A new addition to the "Happily Nappy Family" is Rochelle Ritchie, a reporter with WPTV-TV in West Palm Beach, Florida. In her BAW article, she talks about her experiences - both positive and negative - with going natural, particularly in the midst of a high-profile and very public television career. She made her natural debut during television sweeps week, which was...very interesting to say the least. Click HERE to check out the article in its entirety and see how audiences and her coworkers responded.

In the meantime, take a gander at the video and step inside the world of Black women and their wonderfully diverse hair...

Thoughts, anyone?
