Happily Natural Day Overview :

Happily Natural Day is a vehicle through which afrikans regardless of religious ideology, political frame of reference, economic status, gender, or age can come together for the sole purpose of celebrating the fact that they are afrikan and proud of their ethnicity. Happily Natural Day specifically focuses on natural hair because women of afrikan descent throughout the globe have been taught to straighten their hair in order to conform to a european standard of beauty. To this phenomenon, HND responds "Black is Beautiful" and encourages all afrikans to "Love Thyself" with the overstanding that a nation can only rise as high as its women. Utilizing the twin pillars of informative lectures and conscious musical expression, HND achieves it's purpose annually by fusing together the most dynamic spoken word, hip-hop and soul artists of this era with leading natural health & haircare experts and afrikan scholars in the diverse realms of black consciousness. Personalities such as Neely Fuller, Dr. Llaila Afrika, Bobby Hemmitt, Rev. Phil Valentine, Malaika Cooper and Del Jones have graced the same stage as Kenya Nairobi, Queen Sheba, 13, Oktbrwrld, Brown.f.i.s.h., Laini Mataka, Heru, Melame Ganges, Farafina Kan, and Ezibu Muntu just to name a few. As a result of this specific focus on brigding the gap between information and entertainment and elder and youth, annually Happily Natural Day becomes an incubator of revolutionary thought and a catalyst for social change.
