Kelly Moreira, Afro. Love this style, and I've worn my hair like this after being inspired. Such a beautiful photo and young lady.

Erykah Badu Her hair

Lola Folana. She was considered a great beauty during her hey-day. I just noticed how far the "beauty" standards have shifted when a browner-skinned, more African-featured woman was exalted in the black community who would now call her ugly and favor the whiter-skinned, Euro looking "black" woman with a "biracial" appearance.

put this on my lips/lashes board... but that hair, tho.

1st black model... Donyale Luna...Died of heroine OD, in the 70' beautiful.
