Regina King
By Brenda Alexander

Ever the humble one, Regina King was shocked when her name was announced as the winner for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role in Netflix’s Seven Seconds, the first woman of color to take home the honor. The audience reacted overtly different by giving her the standing ovation she deserved for her 30+ years in the business. Though not her first Emmy, it was the first of its kind and of that magnitude. What shocked me by the press breaks that followed was just how little mainstream America has paid attention to her unparalleled talent.

In fact, it is my love for Naturi that makes me hate Tasha’s look even more.

Seeing celebrities on screen with natural hair is important for our culture because it normalizes natural beauty, proving that we are (and always have been) enough.

In other words, natural hair is a big deal, not a trend, and these celebs are not playing. Check out some of our favs!

After once giving us a glimpse into the up’s and down’s of being a child star and discovering image and self-worth in front of the camera her whole childhood, it appears the actress has finally gotten comfortable in her own style…although she admits that style can change from day to day. Raven recently appeared on My Mane Moment, a project where Essence magazine asks what celebrities “love about their locks, what they loathe, and why Black is so beautiful.”
