New African Woman - Book Review

It's always a good thing to have your book reviewed so when Belinda Otas contacted me for an interview about Hair Power Skin Revolution, I eagerly accepted. The review has now been published in The New African Woman Magazine, Issue 8, (out now).

The New African Woman Magazine is such a refreshing read, full of inspirational articles and fashion that I can relate to. On page 58 Hair Revolution - has a special focus on why a lot of Black women are going back to their natural "roots" with an ever-growing number ditching the chemical relaxer and "human" hair weaves. (Hallelujah!)

The New African Woman Magazine was awarded 'Magazine of the Year' at the second annual Black Entertainment Film Fashion Television and Arts (BEFFTA) Awards, announced at the awards ceremony held last October.

100: WORDS

Introducing Rowena Keaveny, a visual artist living in Ireland, inviting you to take part in an on-line project she recently started called 100:WORDS.

It examines and celebrates loss, love, life and the passing of time and asks people to describe the life they have experienced using 100 words or less.

You can see the project at: or on facebook 100words. So far Rowena has received submissions from the USA, Canada, Finland, Italy, France, Australia, and the U.K. She is hoping that there will be a publication and short film to accompany the project but this will be determined by the amount and type of submissions received.

Please feel free to pass the details on to anyone you feel maybe interested in the project.
