I got my hair styled.
Not “done”, because my hair does not need fixing, and is not broken.

Jean-Michel Basquiat

“Every line means something.”
                      —Basquiat about his work

 

This month, everyone wants to talk about Martin Luther King, and Sojourner Truth.  Every person in history is important, but I would like to learn about new people!  As the creator of a Black Natural Hair blog my desire to incorporate history is 365 days a year.  No time better than the present to talk about Legends with natural hair.  It is important for me to note to you that this is not just a February highlight, but an ongoing goal for kinnks.com.  Any hoot, I was surfing through netflix and I came across a documentary called ‘Jean-Michel Basquiat: Radiant Child’.  I was so skeptical when I first started watching, I never heard of this guy!  The more I watched, the more I grew in amazement about the child prodigy.  I also realized I had been exposed to his work in the past, just didn’t know the artist specifically.


Basquiat started his art career by tagging walls, and subway cars with the name SAMO.  Jean-Michel Basquiat’s productive career spanned just one short decade, yet he is considered one of the best-known artists of his generation and one of only a small number of Hispanic-African-American artists to have achieved international recognition.
The documentary touched on how the media poorly portrayed him.  He was so ahead of his time, so outside of the box, that he was “banished” by parts of the notable art community.  The criticism that he felt were attributed to race, family and drug abuse lead to his very early death.

I cant sweat my hair out!

I take it for granted now…

But its nothing like running through the rain

Going to the club, dancin long and hard

Going swimming AND putting my head underwater

Breakin’ a sweat in the gym

Taking a long steamy shower

… WITH no hair worries

Is Straight Hair More Patriotic?

Is Straight Hair More Patriotic?

I know how I feel…but I often wonder how White women feel about our hair. Huffington Post, Gioia Diliberto: First Hair gave me a little glimpse.  While Huffington Post is very forward thinking, I feel the author agrees with me 100%.  Why can’t Michelle rock her natural hair?
