Today’s Black Fact: Who is Carter G. Woodson? Known as the “Father of Black History,” Woodson (1875-1950) was the son of former slaves, and understood how important gaining a proper education is when striving to secure and make the most out of one’s divine right of freedom. Although he did not begin his formal education until he was 20 years old, his dedication to study enabled him to earn a high school diploma in West Virginia and bachelor and master’s degrees from the University of Chicago in just a few years. In 1912, Woodson became the second African American to earn a PhD at Harvard University. See you Later!

*Happy New Year Peeps!!! Welcome to 2012! This will be my first post of the new year and I’m excited to say it is about my hair!!!* I have no clue how many hairs I have on my head but I know I have a lot!!! And boy!!! It can be tough to manage. (not including the face that my head is somewhat large, at least to me and my husband…) This time around, I wanted to share a little of my “Natural” History with you guys. I get many questions about my hair from all walks of life and I figure, “Hey, if I finally write it down, I may not get as many questions….” *side eye to this entire statement!* My hair has gone through many stages, mostly back and forth between braids, relaxers, and being natural. So when you see these old pictures of me…try not…

¡HOLA! Folks For the past 5 days (Wed through Sunday) I have been on vacation in sunny MIAMI!!! My husband and I went for our cousin’s wedding, which was absolutely amazing!!! I’ve only been to Miami twice, and this time around went well. We stayed at our grandma’s house (on my husband’s side)…which was interesting to say the least. Our grandma is a Jamaican Worry Wart, but she’s loving and funny and jokes about everything! Anywho, to kick off the wedding weekend celebrations, Wednesday night, Andrew had a guys night for the cousins *clearly I did not attend* which seemed to have gone well according to my husband. Thursday, we went to Aventura Mall…THE MOST AMAZING MALL I’VE EVER SEEN!!!! (brief pause – you will soon come to realize that I am a shopaholic) Besides having like 3 floors, and being the 5th largest mall in the US, the craziest part…
