Happily Natural Day workshop alert:


@HappilyNaturalDay will address this epidemic of deadly ingredients in beauty products through an innovative workshop featuring L’Angela “Honeysuckle Moon” Lee, natural skin therapist and plant based wellness educator. 
“It is necessary to make conscious choices about not only what we elect to put into our bodies as food,” says Lee, “but we must also become knowledgeable about what ingredients we are placing onto our skin as a care regimen.”

The alarming revelation of deadly chemicals existing in cosmetic beauty products is ominous when placed in the context of diet related illness in the African American community and its resultant health disparities. 

However, addressing the issues related to a toxic beauty industry are of paramount importance to the festival founder; Duron Chavis. “Happily Natural Day is bigger than a natural hair event, our focus has been to address the needs of the black community over the past decade”. 

Happily Natural Day celebrates its 12th consecutive year since its inception in 2003; launching this year’s celebration at Plant Zero Events Space on August 9th and 10th. 

Lee’s workshop will take place at 3pm on Saturday August 9th.

Come hear her and other dynamic advocates of wellness, natural lifestyles & social progression at this years festival for FREE!

‘Kill Team,’ the mind state imperialism breeds

Review by JR Valrey

“Kill Team” is a very well put together documentary about a number of U.S. soldiers based in Afghanistan who were caught being a part of a kill team that would routinely kill innocent civilians. This is a rare glimpse into the true mind state that imperialism breeds. “It was impossible to not surrender to the insanity of it all,”…
