Curlitude: Dark Girls

I think women of all colors are beautiful, from the kinkiest to the curliest. We are all beautiful.  I have a special love for the rainbow coalition that is my race though.  My complexion hasn't been a major struggle for me because of how I was raised,but I have pretty of  friends and family members who have and continue to struggle with loving the skin their in.  I am a product of generations of ill taught women, who struggle to embrace their beauty, but I choose today to embrace more than my curls, but to love the melanin I was given.

I stumbled across this video on a friends facebook page, and it made me think.  I realized that we have so much growing to do in the African American community....

What do you think? Have you struggled with loving your beauty inside and out? How have you struggled?

Peace and Love,

  1. Hi Curly Locks! (Love that name, I have curly locks too.) Thanks for following my blog, Speak to the Mountain!

    I watched the video you posted here, and I have to say, I had no idea that this was still an issue in the African-American / Black community. I wanted to weep for (and with) those beautiful women who didn't know they were SO beautiful.

    Love, Peace, and Blessings,
