Description


Roots are usually kept underground, out of sight, out of mind, like the necessities of the Underground Railroad kind. Black folks have been digging deep down in those roots for years. They have been pulling up from the roots in their hair to the cotton fields, to what they now have to bring joy and resilience from the difficult struggles in life. Let Katina take you on a poetic journey of revelation as she digs deep down into her own personal roots. Black women are encouraged to reclaim their identity of blackness, embrace their uniqueness of culture, experiences, hair, and skin color, release their emotions, and celebrate their resilience as a people. In other words, dig deep down into the roots of all those things that they have felt they needed to suppress and be ashamed of for years.
