I know I’m kinda late on highlighting natural hair at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics opening games, but I’m going to spotlight it anyway.
Her Excellency The Right Honourable Governor General of Canada Michaëlle Jean opened the Vancouver Games and sported her now trademarked fluffy ‘fro. Jean is the first Black person to be Governor General in Canadian history. Whoo hoo! Although the opening ceremonies needed some more colour (where was Donovan Bailey or Charmaine Crooks to carry a torch or something? I mean, c’mon folks), the Governor General worked it out for all Canadian naturalistas.
On Tuesday, the ladies at work were gushing about Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman who performed the Olympic Hymn. Hair for days!
We’re everywhere 🙂
BTW, go Canada go!!!
