Nik on TV- MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry! (PICS)

I arrived in NYC on Saturday night, reeling with nervous energy.  Doped up on antibiotics, a night cap was out of the question, so I barricaded myself in my hotel room and called it one.  Sunday came and I was up and at ’em by 5am, even though my alarm clock was set for 6:30… almost as if I could hear Gia dragging her sippy cup across the slats in her crib demanding milk #ThePeopleDemandMilk #Attica

Tried to practice in the mirror but felt silly, so I decided to clear my mind and fill the empty space with an incessant stream of Bey, Kanye and for some reason, Nicki Minaj.  My phone was blowing up with text messages from Momma, Daddy and Hubby wishing me well, but the message from my Mother-in-law spoke volumes-

‘Don’t be nervous. You will be just like Tyra that time. You will be anointed. It won’t hit until it’s time. Luv you.’

I headed down to the breakfast buffet. Couldn’t eat. Balancing my ill packed garment bag and enormous purse on stilettos, I wobbled out of the hotel to the town car, threw everything in the back and told the driver to give me a sec so I could run back in to get some cash from the ATM.  He said, ‘Don’t worry about a tip, the studio puts everybody in this hotel and it’s only 2 blocks from their front door.’  I thanked him, but still got some cash and 10 minutes later he dropped me off on a busy street.  Standing in the midst of what I later found out was the beginning of the Puerto Rican Day parade, with a searing headache, I called hubby. Even with all of the technology in the world at my fingertips, I still
asked him, who was hundreds of miles away, where the nearest Walgreens was!

The conversation went something like this-

Hubby: Isn’t there a Walgreens at Time Square?

Me: I don’t know.  How close is that?

Hubby: Aren’t you at 30 Rock?

Me: Oh Sh*t, um yeah, I guess so!

A wave of realization came over me and for some reason I turned around and looked at the building like Tracy Morgan was gonna run out and say something ignorant.  All this time, I hadn’t put that together-  MSNBC… NBC… 30 Rock, duh.

Unlike the Top Flight Security folks at The Tyra Show, NBC let me keep my cell AND my camera, check out the view

Even though on TV his skin can sometimes look like a well worn leather
boot, in person, it’s actually- get this – super smooth. And not just
regular smooth – its a baby’s butt wearing a silk diaper under a satin
onesie smooth!

I was honored to be included in such an illustrious panel.  The hair, the credentials, the discussion… it was a good day.

Desire, cultural

Hola chicas,

I’ve been under the weather lately but I’m shimmying into my big girl drawers and making the trek to NYC to appear on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry.  The guest panel looks awesome and the discussion should be lively!  So if you get the chance on Sunday, tune in at 11am EST to check it out,  I’d appreciate the support.

Wish me luck!
Nik

This whole experience (like I was there, lol), was really inspiring. I love seeing black women in politics. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you so much for sharing this so all could see what a fabulous segment you took part in. You were working it by the way! Go Nikki!

    What a fabulous segment on MHP!!! I was watching her show and surfing on the net when I found out Nikki Walton was a guest on the show. I did miss the original air date but I'm thankful she included the photos and recap. Great discussion and what a distinguished panel.
    Congratulations Nikki!!!

  • wundertwins says:

    GREAT show! I am loving the fact that MHP had such segments on the show. Makes me proud to be a naturalista!

    You are curly angel. You have been such an inspiration to so many..a blessing in my storm of endless hair issues thanks to years of chemical processing..thanks to you and your site I have the ability to be an example for my daughter of how to embrace all that is wonderful about being a natural diamond.
    When you shine..we shine.. so shine on, Girl!!!

    I DVR and watch MHP every week. I was so empowered and inspired from watching Sunday's show. The topic was about Black women and their hair. I loved it. I've been trying to decide whether or not I should wear braids for a while. I am going through menopause and my hair is going through a transition on it's own. I decided to try braids like the braids MHP wears. Perhaps I will go natural in the future. Again the show was inspiring and you all are so beautiful and dished out some great information!

  • Anonymous says:

    Awesome you can preorder the book at barnes and nobles for only 14.99$. Thanks or making this an affordable resource…I ain't got 35$ to spend on a book…though I prob would have bought it anyway. Thanks Nik, it's clear you really care about the community.

  • MelMelBee says:

    Excellent segment Nik! I do believe the the natural hair movement is political. It may not be political on an individual level, but as a collective movement it is definitely political. I agree with Ms. Morgan that we as black women have always been "studied" by the larger society and have become objectified in many ways throughout history. Therefore, regardless if we agree or not, our actions have political, social and economic connotations, especially when the hair industry numbers decreased in 2007 when more women began to move to natural hair.

  • TMS says:

    That "Teachable Moment" is everything!

  • Ebony says:

    I definitely can say that my natural hair journey came out of a purely financial need. I was always in a relaxer until I had a financial set back in 2008. I had to cut out the things that I really could not afford to do anymore and one of those things was monthly trips to the salon. But over time I moved to wanting to be able to take care of my hair on my own so that I could have some control over what it looked like instead of relying on other people to make that happen for me. I don't regret the fact that I had this shift in my focus on my hair because I have never been happier with the way my hair looks and feels. So I'm glad that I had to make the decision to become natural because I don't know if I would have made that choice without some outside force pushing me to do so. LOVED the interview! Nikki you did a great job!

    Great Job Curly Nikki!! Absolutely loved seeing all of you discuss the politics of hair. It's still very political and personal on so many levels for many people. People are curious and some are critical. A platform like the one you were just on will help to enlighten millions of people. Congrats, thanks, and hugs!!

    Nikki, you were incredible. I am 22 years old and I have never had a relaxer in my life. My childhood was full of many a press n' curl however the past few years I have worn my hair completely free of heat. Unfortunately I do not have the ability to do routine trims due to my religion (Apostolic/Pentecostal) However your blog and forums have been a literal godsend. I have learned so many techniques, styles and general hair care information via your resources. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you again!!!!! May God continue to bless your efforts and I wish you all the best

    Anonymous 4:54 keep on going. Don't give in. The Curly Girl Handbook may continue to inspire you. I was reading how even for non blacks "curls" have been political; so I understand the curly girl struggle.
    But that said: CN I was glad to see the cross section of views. I think curls are here to stay and I like that you related it to environmental and lifestyle issues as well; political + reality issues equals curls are here to stay. And I was super proud to see my sister rockin the gray. At some point in the journey to embracing who you are, embracing the ease of lifestyle gray hair will come into play for many (not all…I know some will never embrace it) But that sister with the gray hair afro was smoking. I loved her whole look.
    It would have been great to see a special where some of the multicultural hair entrepreneurs were shown also. I know this is around the corner.
    Thanks for showing up at the interview. Your points as well as the rest of the panel were made well.

  • Bobby says:

    Nicole Ari Parker, looked absolutely stunning on the show and Nikki you look cute as a button and I was thinking I finally heard your voice…lol…after reading your words so many times.

  • Dawn Hewitt says:

    You were fantastic today on Melissa Harris Perry!! I went natural in 1989 when it certainly not the thing to do and to see such a panel today was blessing to my heart, I have lived for the day when being natural would be viewed as yet another beautiful option. We still have more work to do, when strangers stop touching my hair to see if it's real, maybe that will mark the day that natural hair will truly be a common phenomenon. Until then keep up the excellent work. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That was a GREAT segment on MHP! I'm white and Jewish with curly, frizzy hair. I'm 58 and about 10 years ago I made my peace with my hair after fighting it all my life. My hair has never been healthier, and healthy always looks best! The other day a friend suggested (for the second time) that I should straighten it! I told her I don't look good with straight hair. I might have been insulted or hurt by this comment when I was younger, but I realized she said it because she was still fighting her own battle with curly hair! There's no greater zealot than a convert, and I believe that all women, black or white should stop perming. To me a curly perm looks as bad on a woman with straight hair as a straight perm does on a woman with curly hair! I went to high school in the late 60's and all the girls of African-American descent had natural hair (except for one girl who was a cheerleader and hung out with all the WASP kids). I always thought they look so beautiful and cool with their soft bouncy halos, and I've never understood why black women went back to perming. I guess it's a sign of how far we've gone back to the future, and those halcyon days of progressiveness have become a distant memory. I DO think hair is political and when I see evidence that there's a renewed movement by black women to embrace their natural hair, it gives me a glimmer of hope that the culture and politics will start turning toward progressive values as well.

    You did well on MHP this morning CN. Kudos to the hair for holding up in June humidity! The transitioning – vampire analogy by Professor Morgan was classic.

    I am seeing MHP and love that Black Women look so beautiful with different styles, and yes we love to get our hair done, but I am happy for our natural look coming back because there are women who only make $7.50 an hour and cannot go to the Salon often, so to come back to the natural look is great!!

    YAY Nik!!!! I'll be watching. Let's have a code word or signal (Like Carrol Burnett used to do) as a special shout out to all of us tuning in……..Hmmmmmmmm! Mention "Hair Grease" or scratch your forehead. No the forehead thing may look tacky. Um….ok, just pull your earlobe (not original) and then tell MHP that's the curlygirl code!

    Yeah Boi!
