Natural. The Beautiful 'N' Word

I'll be adding a book to my favorite hair books list in the side bar...

Natural. The Beautiful 'N' Word: Breaking the Psychological Bondage of the American Standard of Beauty

by Jennifer C. Jones and Richard O. Jones





You guessed it - Dr. Joanne Cornwell, founder of Sisterlocks, is featured on the cover! Dr. Joanne Cornwell

Book Description:

The American standard of beauty is an optical illusion that has mesmerized the world. Artificial hair, and makeup in the hands of a beautician is equivalent to a deck of cards, a top hat and a magic wand in the hands of a magician. The multi billion-dollar beauty industry has successfully proven that the hand is quicker than the eye. Hypnotically, the public applauds the deception. Most women-even some little girls-are addictive users of the hair and cosmetic charade yet, few know its history.

Most women were convinced in childhood by subliminal messages in the media that their natural hair and facial features were substandard. Ultimately, acquiring the acceptance and applause from a well-trained public became a subconscious ritual. No civilized race or nationality is exempt.

*Featuring a section about Sisterlocks and its' creator, Dr. Joanne Cornwell.

Hi Anon,
I'm happy to know about H. Lewis Smith and his work through your post.

For lurkers, here is a link to his Youtube Channel and to the organization United Voices for a Common Cause, Inc. - an anti-'N" word group.

You've motivated me to edit the one videopost on this blog that had that word in the music! ---

Would hate to make the "Benedict Arnold Wall of Shame" ;o)

Keep up the crusade.
