      I don't know much about this but it sounds interesting on the surface





      Happily Natural Day Online

      Happily Natural focuses on social change, cultural awareness and holistic health & wellness. Since inception it has placed a specific focus on natural haircare, cultural heritage, and naturopathic medicine. Workshops are held annually on modalities for holistic healing, natural haircare & naturopathic medicine. Lectures on history, culture and heritage as it relates to Africans in America & throughout the Diapora are presented by scholars of wide & diverse backgrounds..
      Happily Natural initially focused on natural hair, which resulted in being called a natural hair "show". However; it has a deeper significance and does not simply show patrons the latest in natural hair styles. Happily Natural tackles the tough discussion of "nappy" hair in the African community. Issues of self-esteem, identity, inferiority complexes, socio-psychological wellness are dealt with through informative sessions and presentations.
      Hosted annually through the collective efforts of a wide array of institutions, businesses and dedicated individuals; Happily Natural is a vehicle through which grassroots organizations, cultural activists and community advocates can network and interact in a festive atmosphere while promoting upliftment of the African community. During the festival, patrons are given the opportunity to talk with scholars, vendors & musicians. Community oriented poets, visual artists, and socially responsible business owners work together to inspire, illustrate and network to create cooperative socio-economic realities throughout the Diaspora.
      Happily Natural Day will take place on the weekend of August 30-31 in Richmond Virginia. The festival is August 30th 2008 at Ginter Park Elementary School 3817 Chamberlayne Avenue. On August 31st the Richmond Hip Hop Summit will convene at Virginia Commonwealth University. Stay tuned for the official schedule by joining our email list.
      "Oh Africa! When shall be the term of thy long degradation? Behold here, even now, I pledge thee, O my Mother, that I shall devote my years to thee, shall work for thy redemption, shall love thee and be proud of thee and glory in thy power now lying dormant and shall strive to bring it to the light. Take my youth, my labors, my love, my all and do thou when I shall have died for thee, take me to thy bosom, an untamed, untamable African." -Hubert Harrison

      It sounds good to me too!
      Knowing others is wisdom;
      Knowing the self is enlightenment.
      Mastering others requires force;
      Mastering the self needs strength.

      He who knows he has enough is rich.
      Perseverance is a sign of will power.
      He who stays where he is endures.
      To die but not to perish is to be eternally present.

      Tao Te Ching

      me and my family attended HND on Saturday and it was great. we were vending so i didn't catch any of the workshops/lectures since we were outside. but the music was sweet, Stahr the Femcee and Mike Flow and a live hiphop band from D.C. and DJ Said represented nicely. a brother from the UNIA broke the Obama era down. and the drumming kept my one month old daughter feeling wombful.wonderful to meet, connect with and just see all the beautiful pro BLACK peoples. give thanks to BRO Manifest and crew for bringing it all together. check it out next year if you can!
