Calling all NOLA curlies to Essence 2012

Written by  Madame NOLA
I don’t really “do” Essence if you know what I’m saying. I mean, I’ll hit the Convention Center for the seminars and vendors, but as far as concerts and being seen goes, I’m good. For one, I just can’t seem to care to be that dressed up in this hot ass weather…and Essence folk know they like to dress! For two, I’m not all that fond of shelling out all that money for 20 minutes of stage time (call me cheap…it won’t be the first time).
 
But what I am excited about is the plethora of events for my kinky, curly, and coily-haired friends. Being that the natural phenomenon has grown tremendously in the last couple years, it’s all “natural” that Essence get in on the action (I mean, this is capitalism).
 
So here are some of the great events for natural-haired women going on this weekend:
