Pride | Ibi Zoboi
post image

I‘m so behind (work is insane) so I‘m doing a #quadrupledip to get mostly caught up from the week.
In this Pride and Prejudice retelling, Zuri has a #KinkyAfro & her Bushwick, Brooklyn neighborhood is her #MerseyParadise a place she loves. She & her sister Janae #SitDown on the roof of their building & watch what‘s going on. Zuri has an immediate dislike of Darius Darcy, living #TheLifeOfRiley in his family‘s mini-mansion.🎤😉

Angela Davis--an Autobiography | Angela Yvonne Davis

(Day 17 - #KinkyAfro)

*Angela Davis sports a “Kinky Afro” for real to this very day. My earliest memories of big Afros are of her in her youth: when she was involved with the Black Panthers; when she was jailed for her part in the Soledad Brothers hostage situation; and when she was fired from her position at UCLA (twice), and subsequently rehired after intervention from the Board of Regents. Davis was born in Birmingham, ⬇️

arlenefinnigan YES! Excellent choice ✊ 2mo

gradcat @arlenefinnigan & @Cinfhen Thank you for your nice comments! ♥️ 2mo
gradcat @Joyfulmimi I LOVE that hairstyle—I wish my flat, straight, thin hair would do that! 😅 2mo
Joyfulmimi Actually my hair is naturally curly and thin so it took some work (long story) for the Angela Davis look but I loved it @gradcat 2mo
gradcat @Joyfulmimi I bet it was beautiful! I want a new hairstyle now...or just new hair! 😂 2mo

Remember how popular these books were years ago? I think I have a copy of her other popular one somewhere. In this one, Guiliano discusses beauty in terms of makeup, grooming habits, and just general style. Whether your prefer a #KinkyAfro or a sans makeup look, you can pick up tips in this book. Alas, another one I‘ve yet to read, but I had to pick it up because of the hype. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #RedRoseSeptember

arlenefinnigan Interesting! 2mo
Cinfhen I recall one about what French Women eat and drink 🍷 2mo

Oreo | Fran Ross

This book was a lot of fun but also pretty crazy. It is based on the myth of Theseus which I actually got it because I had previously read The King Must Die by Mary Renault. I don‘t remember If Oreo actually has a #kinkyafro or not but she might have given the book was first published in 1974 and is contemporary. ☮️


arlenefinnigan Cool cover! 2mo
