Kinks, Locs, and Love film premiere recap and photos
On March 19, 2016, we premiered our documentary Kinks, Locs, and Love to a packed house at The R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center. Our host for the afternoon was Tinselyn Simms, activist and educator. Tinselyn warmed up the crowd with personal stories and recent news about natural hair. Tinselyn introduced filmmaker Lawrence Green who informed the guests the motivation behind making the film, identified film crew-members, and began showing the documentary. After the film ended, the audience burst into a round of applause.
Laurence Green. Your movie was absolutely awesome. You took the time to really get to know the reasons why hair is so important to Black women. Your film captured why we love our hair, why we are fearful in the beginning prior to fully embracing our natural hair and there were many laughable moments. Laurence, I pray your documentary is shared with everyone in this country and all over the world. I pray the stories of all the women represented in your film, especially the story of your lovely wife touch the hearts of many.Peace, Blessings and GREAT success.
