This was so cup filling to hear testimonials of my colleagues and students who are experiencing similar hair journeys and learning to come together and love their natural hair, whatever that might look like for them. It was rewarding to be in such a safe space where i knew that the things i was feeling and saying were echoed by those around me.
Would love more discussions like this one, great job and it was well done and thought out.

I really enjoyed learning more about people’s personal journey with their natural hair journey. So many diverse experiences and perspectives in that space. I also appreciated having a topic that centered Black women on a predominantly white campus.
