Crystal Afro is Attending
If you've ever read any of the articles on the Controversy & Curls Page you'll know that a number of articles and issues I've provided links to, have been written by featured speaker Hannah Pool, most recently the Cornrows non-traditional? article.
Part of the reason why many of us in #Teamnatural are so passionate about what we do, is because we know we're up against the very serious challenge of mis-conceptions which result in many black people failing to realise their true beauty.

I cant wait for the debate and I've also registered for my ticket today.

Hope to see you there UK Naturals.
