To kick off my new feature #HAIRitageHaikus, I’d like to start with a series of definitions I created to help understand all the various meanings behind Honoring Our HAIRitage.
These definitions highlight the many reasons why I named this blog Honoring Our HAIRitage. In addition, they each represent a central reasons why I decided to go natural.
For the first definition, I was inspired by the history of Black women’s hair and wanted to come up with a phrase that combated our negative past and ushered us into a new movement of reclamation.
The past month in a half has been stupid busy for me! I’ve been traveling for work, started working with young women for an after-school program, and I’m managing a planning committee for next year’s International Natural Hair Meet-up Day, all while planning a retirement party for my mother! Obviously, I had no time to blog and needed a break to handle personal goals.
Thankfully, I never lost my motivation for this blog and for staying connected to you all. I am grateful for your patience.
For my return, I’m excited to start a special new feature for this blog! I am a very visual person, and I love all the motivational quote images that are popular today. So, I decided to start creating some of my own for this blog.
Starting this week, I will begin a feature called, HAIRitage Haiku’s with inspiring poems, words of wisdom, and encouragement for naturals, all created by ME.
I hope you enjoy them!
Please feel free to share any ideas you may have for how I can make the feature meaningful for you.
