women (238)

 
 

Most Black women can remember being told at an early age that our hair is our crown and glory. We learn to center our very existence based on what our hair looks like and how others perceive it. Of the many spaces we occupy, our hair represents points of joy and trauma.

During the course of doing this study it became clear to me that the Proverbs 31 Woman

We need to specifically look at and know what god's purpose was when he created woman,
