But first, Happy National Crown Day! Today commemorates the one-year anniversary of the signing of the inaugural CROWN Act in California by Governor @gavinnewsom .
β €
To celebrate, I gave Her Majesty some TLC last night with a deep conditioning and protein treatment. Who is Her Majesty? My hair of course! She has a mind of her own and definitely is the one running things around here. πŸ˜‚ (Shoutout to @_pagesgaloree for lessons in hair love!!!).
β €
❓Do you have a name for your hair?
β €
Today, I binge read his baby while my hair continued air drying.

πŸ“š Wash Day
by @JamilaRowser & Robyn Smith @vibraniumbabe β €
Summary: This short graphic novel is simply about Black joy! It’s a one day account of one woman’s wash day showing love for her hair while still living her life.
β €
❀️ Kim is relatable. From her unbothered reaction to life’s minor woes to her showing love to her roommate, we all know a Kim or could even be her.
β €
πŸ’” This story was too short for my liking and I wanted so much more!
β €
Recommendations: Anyone seeking a Black joy read!
β €
✨ β€œ #TheCROWNAct has passed in 7 states and has been introduced in over 20 additional states and at the federal level. Today is a day of solidarity for the human rights of Black men, women and children to wear their natural hair boldly and proudly, without the fear of being discriminated against in school or the workplace. β€œ – @thecrownact β €
