A woman of courage and insight

You only have to check out the "Politics of Hair" section of the Cornrows & Co. website to see the long string of so-called giants who have fallen in her wake. We are so fortunate to have her join our co-hosts, Cassandra Lawson and Dr. JoAnne Cornwell on this podcast. Listen, learn and be inspired!
