Sisterlocked and other Natural Sistahs on the Study Tour of Ancient Kemet

We're back! Safe and sound on Terra firma after an 11 hour flight from Cairo to New York City. Before every Egypt Air flight, a prayer for safe travel in Arabic is played. I didn't understand what was said, but was happy to know everyone was on one accord and affirming for our safe arrival!

What a life altering experience! Our examination of the tombs and temples of Egypt with an emphasis on the Afrikan origin of the concepts and stories that we find in the 3 major western religions was fascinating. I am likely to blog more than once about what we did, where we went, what we saw and what we learned!

But today, I want to introduce you to some of my new friends who shared in this great adventure with us - wonderful, beautiful sisters and a few handsome brothers too!

Naomi (weave extension - Cairo Airport)

Robert (palm-rolled traditional locs - alabaster factory in Luxor)

Mikey (short fade - Tomb of the Nobles in Aswan)

Ben (uncultivated traditional locs - cruising under the Aswan Bridge - sorry for the blur!)

Sharon S. (sisterlocked 2 years - the Giza Plateau)
Sharon H. (palm-rolled traditional locs - the Great Pyramid at Giza)
Diane (Kinky twist extensions - the 'New Ark' of Pharoah Khufu)
Michelle (two strand twists - on the Giza Plateau)

Me, in Cairo, at the Conrad Hotel overlooking the Nile River!

Finally, at Dashur, with Dr. Ray Hagins who is sporting his signature "skinny" under his cap.

More to come!

Native ATL checking in!

I hope you had a great time in Kemet... I wish/hope I will see it one day, for I am sick and tired of hearing "other people" say the people {Kings and Queens} of Kemet were not Black! I would love to go see the glyphs, statues, carvings {those that are left, as Nepoleon and others have taken the noses off, to attempt to hide the origin}.

Take Care~
