the lady in red
ring of curls and a round of tea.
I met Syd during the annual Curl Fest gathering in Brooklyn, New York. It’s an ultimate natural beauty convening and feels like a congregated throng of people who know the meaning of self-love from all hues and melanin.
It was a welcome overwhelming, to be within the context of black culture and expression. And while in it, I wanted to know about the other ritual that people of color subscribe to beyond hair: their drinking habits.
Syd captured my attention with her red blouse, being red like this against the panorama of a wide, open green landscape, dotted with human color and of course this unabashed smile.
She drinks tea, with ginger.
