Black Women in Europe Blog™ 10th Anniversary notes:

I picked Lesley-Ann Brown to be a Black Women in Europe Blog™ Shero because of her beautiful way with words. She’s a prolific poet and essayist with her own publishing imprint as well as dedicated mother, activist and wordsmith. I first blogged about Lesley-Ann in April 2008. Lesley-Ann also knows how to pull together a picnic in Copenhagen where a sister can meet other funny, inspiring and lovely sisters. Somehow Lesley-Ann found the time to write two poems to commemorate the Black Women in Europe Blog™ 10th Anniversary. How fortunate are we? Download your copy now.

Tak Lesley-Ann. Thank you for choosing your words wisely.

comment pirater un compte facebook facile Being a black woman in Europe I know there are me many stereotypical people out there that put us a side in Yoga classes. I normally do Yoga as it helps with my period pain and relieves any tension I have in my body. When I can't make it I read The Mooncup Diary It's a great resource for women of all backgrounds and I can promise you now any mature female will love the advice they have to share.

HAIRitage, a short film exploring Black hair in Britain

HAIRitage: We asked Black men and women of East London to share their opinions and experiences of living with Black hair in Britain.

Whilst some simply shared their favourite hairstyles, others explored the more serious topic of how their hairstyle choices impact their identity. This film explores how and why Black women have been made to feel that their hair is inferior.
