    I hate when people who aren't black call a

    Celebrate Nappy

    If you're black, or if you have close friends who are black, you are familiar with the term "nappy hair".   Many blacks have nappy hair, and they describe it that way!  Even some white folks have nappy hair. I nor my mother was patient enough...

    I Love My Hair

       I thought this video was really cute.  Sesame Street has always been innovative in finding ways to reach across cultural barriers.  Theres something for everyone.
