A few weeks back, Tia and I was lucky enough to be invited to Philly’s first annual Natural Hair show! We met some dynamite people, and took a whole bunch of pictures. Of course at these types of events, we never expect to see men but I was lucky enough to meet a few. Pictured here is one of the men that I met Derrick and his lady friend. Derrick has been loc’d for 11 years and as you can see, his locs are gorgeous. He didn’t say much (his girlfriend says he is a bit shy) but he did tell me he maintains them himself.
I also took a few other pictures of vendors and vendor displays, I even had the opportunity to meet up with a spoken word artst known in DC as “Big Homey”. He allowed me to feature him in our loc’d talk (which I will post very soon). Overall the event was well planned and very nice for its first. The turn out was great too! Can’t wait to see what next year has in store :)
Take Care All
