The seemingly new surge of African American women wearing natural hair is actually not new at all as many may think. I have met women who have been natural all of their lives.
It is an act of grace that has given many women, including myself, a chance to rewind the hands of time to reclaim our natural roots and receive healing in the process. With this realization, I write this prayer:
Thank you for giving us a chance to reconnect to our past. Help us learn from it. Heal and close any generational wounds and scars passed on to us from the oppression and abuse of slavery. Continue to unveil our creativity and guide us in using it to do Your will.
