UK based company LAMBB (Look at My Black Beauty) recently released Future First. The film was produced in response to cornrows being renamed “boxer braids”. However, it is way more than just a response video, it is a celebration of the magic of black women.
“The anchor point of the film is cultural appropriation but it expands much wider than that – it isn’t about taking a stance as a victim, it is about reclaiming our place as black women and not being afraid to take up space”, says Co-Founder and Director Naomi Grant.
There's not enough platforms where the accomplishments, the joy and positive contributions to society women of color put forward are celebrated, so we created ADELPHEE. If I am not sharing black girl magic on ADELPHEE you can find me on blacknaps.org where I share natural hair care advice and tips.
