This video was forwarded to me by a friend. I had to share it with you and the CN community. This clip was featured on Sesame Street recently. I want to run out and show it to all the little girls who are begging their parents for relaxers. Heck, there are a few adults I wouldn’t mind showing it to as well. LOL! Well, please enjoy it. I hope it inspires you and all the other natural women to keep fighting the good fight!

    Amazing video. I wrote a book that addresses the same issues. So far my fans love it for their little girls.

    You are designed by God!!!

    This video is too cute and came right on time, becuase my 4 yr old SON was upset the other day because his bestfriend at school had a spiky mohawk and he didnt.

    So of course me being natural I proudly told him his hair was different, I told him his hair was wavy and curly and most important beautiful the way god made it and his caucasian friend's hair was straight and beautiful just the way god made it for him.

    Needless to say all that did was upset him more that his hair was "different"!..He made such a big deal about not wanting curly hair which totally took me for a loss.

    I never imagined having that talk with my son but apparently boys are affected by their natural hair too!

    So kudos to sesame street for bringing this issue to the forefront!

    After I saw this I went on Sesame Streets youtube page(http://www.youtube.com/SesameStreet) and asked them if they could put the video up on their channel (for a better quality for anyone that wants to download it like I knew I would lol).

    This made my day. So cute and sweet. Very postive and truthful. I am now wearing my hair in two-strand twists. I love how many things I can do VS. having it straighten at the salon. Even then I always got some type of curl style.

    This video is too cute. I love my hair too. I posted on my facebook page for all my friends to see. After showing it to my 8 year old daughter who wants me to straighten her beautiful waves out, she said mom I don't think I want to go the salon now – I like my hair. YEA!!!!!

  • Passion says:
