Atlanta Sisterlocks Meet-Up

Hi Sisterlock Enthusiast,

The Atlanta Sisterlocks Meet-Up is hosting an event September 8th:

Hi Everyone,
You are invited to "da Kink in My Hair" play! Don't miss this time to connect with other Sisterlockers and Sisterlockaholics like myself. We will gather 30 minutes before the play begins to meet and greet.
Play Synopsis:
“If you want to know a black woman, you touch her hair,” says Novelette, as she delves into the tresses and stresses of her clients to reveal their hidden stories. Set in a Caribbean hair salon in Toronto, ‘da Kink in my Hair gives voice to eight black women who tell their unforgettable stories in a kaleidoscope of drumming, singing and dance. It is a testament to the challenges and triumphs in the lives of contemporary black women, many of whom are immigrants to North America from the Caribbean. Mixing laughter and tears, revelation and inspiration, the unapologetically intense stories of each woman are woven together in this powerful piece.
