What if Afrocentricity Came Back?

Tuesday, October 21, 2008


It would be surprisingly simple: In mid-2009, If Barack or Michelle Obama as the First Couple chose to discard his tightly-cropped fade and she ditched the permed coif and went au naturale, would the world follow? Would the top celebrities - what if Beyonce rocked a 'fro? - Rihanna, Jay-Z, Chris Brown, Bono, Sting (yes, they can grow 'em and so can others) all took the cue and started growing nappy roots? What if it didn't stop with the hair, what if a focused re-education on Africa took place in the West? What if Afrocentricity came back? Not just the hairstyles, but the world view that all things Africa were important. Could it?

Yeah, then I wouldn't feel so out of place when I wear mine and random strangers want to touch it...

Hmm this is a very interesting thought.. and considering the world today, most definitely would they follow. And thinking about it, i think it'd be a pretty neat thing to happen too.

Like your blog as well :)
