Return of the ‘Fro + Greys & Blacks | Wednesday, September 23, 2015


Wearing hats every day makes taking care of my hair a challenge.  I ended up spending Wednesday morning picking out so many snarled strands from days of hair ties and hat wearing.  Having an afro at a predominantly white institution, when paired with these clothes in particular, feels like a powerful juxtaposition.  It’s a form of taking up space that I feel is important.  I wasn’t too pleased with how this grey tie looked after I put it on, especially given how long my beard’s gotten.  I ended up switching it out for a patterned blue tie later.
