Description

The Natural-We Community Hair Show is a cultural event that celebrates the beauty of African American/Africana hair and raising money towards a cause. Founded by T.J. Robinson, Ph.D. student at Claremont Graduate University and adjunct professor at several colleges and universities in the Los Angeles area, the Natural- We Community Hair Show celebrates the natural hair of Black people or peoples of African descent globally. In addition, the Natural-We Community Hair Show is a fundraiser to support a Black organization or school in their efforts to build, empower and heal Black people. This year 50% of the proceeds will go to Children Striving Together, a non-profit youth organization in Compton, CA.
