Carol’s Daughter founder Lisa Price talks women, black and white, living their lives without the fear of scrutiny from others.
I love the words to Jill Scott’s song “Golden.” To me it is prayer, mantra and meditation.
“I’m strumming my freedom, playing the God in me.
I was born into it
It comes naturally.”
Such powerful words! What makes them even more powerful is that Jill lives by them. This gives them their credence and their power. Jill’s beauty graces the cover of the October issue of Essence magazine and of course she is glorious. Her one request? That she be photographed with her natural hair. I LOVE when women do this. Not just when it comes to hair, but when we celebrate our beauty on our own terms.
