Founded in 2013 Loc Love Lives Here is a unique online destination where the intersections of beauty and politics are discussed through a pro Black feminist lens. Our community quickly amassed over 15,000 followers and spawned the annual #BestOfLocsAwards as well as the #ITaughtMarcJacobs hashtag campaign featured in HuffPost
during the Marc Jacobs 'twisted mini bun' fiasco. Moving forward we'll be bringing our community offline and into real time contact. We value sisterhood, authenticity, collectivism and critical thought as methods of overcoming Eurocentric beauty ideals and social norms and welcome you to join the conversation.
Tired of feeling like YOUR natural isn't good enough or being ostracized for not being 'natural' at all? Bummed about Shae Moisture's drastic changes in marketing? This is the place to talk about it without fear of judgement, ridicule and some of the one dimensional conversations you might be used to. Check out the workshops we offer on the politics of black hair here.
Bring us to your school, job or organization to have some tough but necessary conversations. We have your back.
Speaking on the intersections of natural hair and activism at the House of Art Gallery in Brooklyn. Hosted by Natasha Gaspard of Naturals 4 Change and Mane Moves TV. Featuring Lurie Daniel Favors of Afro State of Mind, Imani Dawson of Tribe Called Curl and Arielle Newton of Black Milennials.
