Braid Locs Shooting for Justice

SHOOTING FOR JUSTICE

MIREILLE LIONG-A-KONG  .PHOTOGRAPHER .AUTHOR  .  SOCIAL WEBPRENEUR

Super impressed by the striking natural hairstyles at BAM Dance Africa in 2003, I started capturing the hairdos for my web community Going-Natural.com to share the joy and beauty of Black natural hair.

Sponsored by the great Jorgen Raymann to speak at the commemoration of 150 years Emancipation in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, inspired me to start this new chapter: BAD Hair Uprooted

With BAD Hair Uprooted, I also hope to shine a light on the Social Injustice that Black people don't have the fundamental human right to wear their God-given tresses natural. Afros, Cornrows and Dreadlocks, perfect styles for African strands are still stereotyped, considered unprofessional and it kills Black follicles.

So I am shooting for justice aiming to change the perception of natural hair one shot at the time. Please join me by liking, sharing and commenting on the natural hairstyles you love and submit your own beautiful hairdo if you like.

Of course you are more than welcome to come to any of my exhibitions. Sign up for the mailing list so I can keep you posted. I look forward meeting you in person.
