For those of you who still think there is such a thing called “good hair” what does that necessarily mean? It’s straighter,… Curlier? If that’s the case, if your hair isn’t what good hair is described as , what do you consider your hair?? Do you tell people “I have bad hair?” More importantly, how do you or will you explain to your child that they have “bad hair”?? .. Don’t worry, I’ll wait . 😌

CultureSOUL: The Affrilachians c. late 1800s From original poster:

 “The term Affrilachian, coined in the early 1990’s by Kentucky poet Frank X Walker. Walker sought to recognize people who are both African American and Appalachian, and to recover the multiracial identify of the region. The people of the southern mountains were, from early settlement days, a community of white, Native American, and African American families.”
