IT’S BIGGER THAN YOUR AFRO

Happily Natural Day picks up where conversations about how to style natural hair drift off.
This is more than a hair show.

KHEPRA ANU TEACHES AT HAPPILY NATURAL DAY

Then there was coconut water…

 

So this year at Happily Natural Day we had the pleasure and honor (honorable pleasure) to host the amazingly gifted and intelligently humble Khepra Anu.

If you have been rocking with Happily Natural Day for a couple years or longer – you may remember the time Hurricane Katia hit the same weekend as the festival. If you were there then you know it was a special year, with an amazing line up but alas (deep sigh and dramatic pause) the lights went out and we were unable to do what we do best.

BRINGING BACK BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL

More than a matter of mere social preference or taste, at Happily Natural Day we identify with this social phenomenon as a by-product of Western cultures imposition of a value upon African people and its result – African’s people negation of self as its own standard of beauty. Our concern is with the social ramifications of 400 years of negating ourselves in conformance to Western society’s mores and how that phenomenon impacts our community in a negative way today. Happily Natural Day addresses the fact that Western society influences people of indigenous descent to act outside of their own self-interest, away from self-determination and toward exploitation and oppression.
