Natural Hair Fest DC Metro @ Double Tree Silver Spring
Feb 4 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Welcome to our world of Natural Hair and Beauty Culture, Natural Hair Fest Washington DC, Maryland & Virginia 2018 Black History Month Celebration. This February we continue to engage and inspire all within reach in solidarity with the local, statewide, regional, national and global natural hair movement. We also greet with open arms information seekers and those who are now ready to crossover and mesh with this lifestyle choice. Anticipated number of attendees 400-1000.

Natural Hair Fest DC METRO is designed to promote a way of life that nurtures natural hair growth and teaches proper regimens for the care and maintenance of healthy, natural hair. We are equally concerned about beginning the process of healing and taking preventative measures to offset hair loss and disorders of the scalp that plague our communities in epidemic proportion. We summit to pin-point, intercept, negate and correct mis-education, mis-information, and bad habits that lead to challenges associated with managing our coarse, curly, kinky, coily and multi-textured hair types.

Natural Hair Fest DC-MD-VA is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. It is important Consumers or Potential Clients, especially those who are doing their own hair at home, be placed on the front lines of this informative campaign. This is where our greatest effort to dispell distorted perspectives on the uniqueness of hair inherent in peoples of african descent lies.

Natural Hair Fest DC-MD-VA serves as a platform upon which we can dialogue about the potentially negative long term effects that improper chemical processing and overuse of heat styling acoutrements can have the DIY Consumer’s hair, scalp and health.

Natural Hair Fest DC-MD-VA is a one-stop destination where Consumers will be able to meetup and make conscious, person to person connections with skilled , Instructors, business-minded Professionals, Freelancers and Students in attendance who specialize in natural hair care. To become a Sponsor, Advertiser, Exhibitor, Vendor, Instructor, Natural Hair Stylist, Fashion Designer, Make Up Artist, Performer/Entertainer, Model, Spoken Word Artist, Volunteer and/or Attendee call 240.646.4819 for Mark David Carter, email dmv@naturalhairfest.com, or visit us online at www.naturalhairfest.com.

ANWO Convention 2018 @ Nyumburu Cultural Center, College Park MD
Mar 24 @ 9:00 pm – Mar 25 @ 4:00 pm

Theme: Building the Revolutionary Capacity of African Women.

Our ANWO convention will be an important opportunity to bring our members together and showcase the international scope of revolutionary working class African women who understand that revolution is the only solution to end our oppression. There is no other resolution the can stop the state-sponsored kidnapping of African children, the mass incarceration of African women and men, police murders and other contradictions that deeply transform how African women live.

The way forward is clear ANWO must organize ourselves so that we can meet the women where they are. We must be able to lead and truly shape our future without colonial domination.
