My first encounter with her was the book Rape and it was jarring but I loved how she laid out her arguments and have loved her books after.

All I’d say, never wear the wig ever again!

Viola Davis decided to ditch the wig she traditionally wears in favour of her little ‘fro. How young does she look!

This totally shows the finger to all the glossies that imagine that when african women with natural hair want a make over, they are secretly crying out for a weave intervention.  Sometimes, they just want to have their hair done up like Viola on the right.

ION, it would have been nice if she had worn the Oscar for Best Actress, watched the Help and she did a phenomenal job!
