Are you still relaxing and perming your hair? Every since cops smoked Sandra Bland, we’ve been wearing our hair nappy like Blue Ivy’s. It isn’t necessarily contributing to the black lives matter movement, or nothing. It’s simply an outward expression of our culture and ancestry. Our hair defies gravity. It’s brash, strong, unruly, and hard to sift thru. Kinda like Solange Knowles break out album, A Seat At The Table.
When I first started writing this record I was tired, filled with grief, and feeling broken. I felt so many got to create my narrative and all I wanted to tell my story, our story, in my own words, and in my own voice. 4 years later I am completely overwhelmed and humbled with pride and GRATITUDE for all of the love I have received on #aseatatthetable . I'm actually stunned still. I can't even put into words. Thank you all. I can't thank you enough.
