Let Your Locks Fly in Philadelphia

Share |



If you’re planning to be in or near Philadelphia this weekend, October 7–8, you should check out the Annual International Locks Conference at the Laborers' Local 332 Union Hall, 1310 Wallace Street. The Queens of Lockdom, Mama Akosua Ali Sabree and Sakinah Ali-Sabree, plan to gather some of the best experts on natural hair care, health, and African-inspired beauty.

You can get a massage, eat some delicious vegetarian meals, buy healthcare products, or get more information on yoga and meditation.

This year’s conference is held in the memory of Locks Conference founder Sharon Cynthia Ellawesia Leonard Goodman, who died last year. God rest her soul.

Hello there.. I can't believe I'm just finding out about this and it's October 10th, so I missed the opportunity to attend. Thanks for writing about it and I hope to be in attendance next year!

Inspirations and blessings,
Nat

Natacha,
There's always next year! And since your in D.C., your're not that far from the Conference. I'm down here in Nashville, so it's hard for me to make it.

By the way, I love your blog! Keep up the good work.

Hmm, wonder how I can bring that conference around the country on tour! Don't even know where to begin explaining why it'd be so valuable...

Mars,
I agree with you whole heartedly. For instance, I think a Locks Conference in Nashville would help bring some soul and funk to the city. We desperately need it down here!
