thinking about black women's hair

I grew up during the age of the Afro, and I thought it was the coolest. That's why the debate today among black women about hair interests me. miss_mu twittered, "Hair is looking so good today I would like to get my picture on @lecoil." So I followed a couple of links, and thought Team Zahara is well worth reading, and this pic at lecoil is well worth seeing.

Most of my blog posts are for Emma's sake, but this one is especially for her, 'cause when she was a girl, she wanted to look like Beverly Johnson. I wanted to look like Jimi Hendrix. To anyone who knows the time period, that says way too much about the kind of teens we were, and undoubtedly adds to the reasons we've been together for so long.
