On Saturday 19 September, The Feminist Stokvel is inviting everybody that is raising a black child (white people raising black children are especially welcome) who need some practical tips on looking after them baby hairs from washing to styling or any parent / sibling / nanny who has anxieties about black children’s hair because mornings are stressful, because untransformed school codes that ”other” the hair of black children. We’re inviting parents who have resisted relaxer… or those who would like to but are not there yet.
Tickets are R55 for adults and R55 for kids are are available on Quicket or search the event title: The Feminist Stokvel Hair Soiree: Dem Baby Hairs!
We will also be selling our special Kiddies Hair Starter Kit for R150.
Come through, our resident experts, Kavuli Nyali-Binase of Good Hair Diaries and Writer, Poet and Perfomance Artist Lebo Mashile will carefully drive this conversation to its myriad destinations. The hair of black children is problematized from when we are young, we are trying to stop that.
Bring them babies, they will have a play section especially dedicated to them, and…and…we are writing some kid friendly shabooya role calls that are about positive hair image that the kids will be learning that day! Just tell us how old your child is if you’re RSVPing and are planning to get a ticket for them.
The event is hosted at Keleketla Libraray at the King Kong building, 6 Verwey Street, Doornfontein.
