    Question Political Actions: non-governmental

    Bought two copies of O: THE OPRAH MAGAZINE, September 2013 issue last weekend, because of the cover photo of Oprah Winfrey wearing a fitted orange dress, with HUGE hair.
    This issue stood out from across the airport corridor, drawing me into the store.
    I remembered seeing an old photograph of her when she'd won a college beauty contest, before she had a job that demanded she reduce her big hair.
    On pages 14, 27, and 190, come to find out it's a wig, which she's decided to call Wild Thang, "borrowed from Beyonce's mane woman, Ms Kim Kimble".
    Ms Winfrey says, in sum and substance, that her hairstylist of thirty years, Mr Andre Walker, has helped her hair stand up to the years of media styling by "giving it wig breaks"; his products are mentioned.
    So now it appears to me that the two of them (Oprah and Andre) are aware of the fury about his comments on Afro-American hair types, and this issue is her way of helping him make amends with the black community,
    to promote his product line.
