Natural hair has become a trendy topic in the past few years. More and more celebrities have begun to show off their natural texture. One of the biggest actresses in Hollywood (and arguably one of the most talented) Viola Davis, shocked people when she wore her natural hair on the red carpet for the 2012 Academy Awards.
And while there is questionably more support for natural hair now, there is still plenty of education and work to be done to show that the movement is less about style and more rooted in identity. That’s what the film FOLLICLE is aiming to promote. On August 26, 2015 you can be a part of that change!
This coming Wednesday, FOLLICLE will be hosting a fundraiser to help spearhead the movie’s efforts to bring their message to a global scale.
On August 26th from 6-10:30pm you can join the FOLLICLE team at Dinosaur BBQ in New York City as they hope to get closer to their goal of raising $8,000 for film production. Doors will open at 6 pm and the first 175 people will get very generous gift bags from the FOLLICLE team. And on top of that Dinosaur BBQ will be offering free (yummy) food!
Director and creator Rhadamés Julián will give a presentation on exactly what FOLLICLE is, its origin and why he’d like your support. In addition, the event will host a panel discussion about black hair and its influence on global culture. You can expect that conversation to get very real, honest and authentic.
Take advantage of this opportunity to be involved with a local, independent film and you’ll be entered to win raffles and door prizes at the even too!
