For those that love all things concerning hair and politics, we have a treat for you! The Congressional Black Caucus and Annual Legislative Conference is scheduled for dates September 23 – 26, 2012 in Washington D.C. There will be a variety of galas, receptions, and even a panel discussion held by the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce.
But along with so many political, social and economic focused events, Lyssa Hargrove and Shawne Morgan are also hosting The Healthy Hair Affair (meetup) event on September 22, 2012. During The Healthy Hair Affair participants will address the politics behind hair, what is “good hair” versus “bad hair”, how can we make healthy hair decisions, and encourage women of color to “embrace” their hair.
Most importantly, the event is geared towards ALL hair types (whether you are relaxed or natural.) There will also be door prizes, vendors, a photo booth, and CELEBRITY GUEST!
