Black women view their hair as a problem. To enjoy black hair, such negative thinking has to be unlearned.   --bell hooks
 
Don’t remove the kinks from your hair. Remove them from your brain.  --Marcus Garvey
 
It takes care and attention and time to handle natural hair. Something we have lost from our African culture are the rituals of health and beauty and taking time to anoint ourselves. And the first way we lost it was in our hair.   --Hariette Cole, in Hair Story

Call for Academic and Creative Proposals:

“Conflict is not another word for crisis or for war or for competition. Conflict is a condition of intellectual life, and, I believe, its pleasure. Firing up the mind to engage itself is precisely what the mind is for—it has no other purpose. Just as the body is always struggling to repair itself from its own abuse, to stay alive, so is the mind craving knowledge. When it is not busy trying to know, it is in disrepair.”

- Toni Morrison, “Grendel and His Mother”
