I am thrilled about Solange Knowles‘ new song “Don’t Touch My Hair” from her album A Seat at the Table. It is sure to mean many things to many people. For me it is a reminder of my poem “African Prince” from Love Beyond God: Meditations and the fact that black women and men both experience casual physical violations much too often in a world that is fascinated by our bodies as objects.
Remember folks, our beautiful black bodies may be gardens of wonder and creativity, but they are not a public playground. (click image below to view full size)

One thought on “Hair…”
You spoke to it all. ❤️
