Pretty vain of me to show
How myself comes out w/out a flow
Tightened up sometimes dry as can be
As I look daily in my mirror to see
Who I've become is my mother back Then
But now why oh why is it a sin
Not to kill those naps I can only believe in
Like a man has those on his chin
I'm gonna defend
Waking up and giving water a scent
Of what's in me
I refuse to carry death on my head for a fee
You see my black hair matters
One strong thing I own that will not be shattered​

the near north
i remember those times
back in the day
afro
high-top fades
wearing it the natural way
cake-cutter in the back
had to keep it tight
everyday
battling the winds
trying to keep it right

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
