I was recently talking to one of my really good friends (she is Caucasian), who happened to read my blog for the first time this week. We often refer to each other as sisters from other mothers, since we are so in sync and usually say things in-stereo.
She read my post: Straight Up and she was really struck by it after reading about the chemicals black woman use just for so-called beauty.
She then said, “imagine if Michelle Obama and her daughters were to go natural. They could not only influence black woman in North America, but all over the world.”
I totally agree with her and it would be wonderful if someone like Michelle Obama would go natural and show her true beauty to the world.
I do, however, want to mention that I’m honoured to be a Canadian Curlie and see that our former Governor General of Canada the Rt. Honourable Michaëlle Jean has rocked her curls on many different occasions. It was really great to see and makes me feel proud.
Here are a few others that make me proud, not only because of their beautiful crown and glory, but also because of their accomplishments as African Canadian women – GO ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF!!!Jemini from Toronto’s G98.7 FM PHOTO: www.fullcc.com Measha Brueggergosman – Canadian opera singer.

Which other African Canadian public figures make you feel proud to be Curlie?
Blessings and Curls,
