I was in two separate malls this weekend and both times, I saw black and brown women, dressed in sun dresses, capri pants, tank tops, bangled braclets and earrings, natural hair and relaxed hair blowing the breeze. Light illuminated from their smiles, as they held out their arms and walked or ran towards other sisters/friends/family who were already awaiting their arrival. They were all on their way to see this delightful movie about sisterhood, womanhood and friends. They were there to support these beautiful talented actresses and have a wonderful time with one another. The entire spectacle was poetic and magical for me. There's a special way that black and brown women show up and support one another. There's a special way that we show up to support a cause. And as a business owner, I can tell you, nobody supports me more than black and brown women and they constantly tell me that they want to see me win. That means more to me than any amount of $$$. Because I know that if we stick together, we can save our community, and revise black business, we can encourage hollywood to make movies that respect us, and show us in our proper form. There is nothing like our love, support and unity. To everyone who follows this page, to everyone who supports Hydro Quench Systems and other natural haircare companies, festivals, bloggers, thank you, thank you, thank you!! ❤❤❤ #naturalhair#relaxedhair#girlstrip#girlstripmovie#naturalhairmovement#blackwomen#brownwomen#sistas#friends#blackbusinss ...
