I AM NOT MY HAIR


Blog # 5

I Am Not My Hair by India Arie

Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship

Hey I am not my hair
I am not is skin
I am not your expection no

Breast cancer chemotherapy took away her crown and glory
She promise God if she was to survive
She would enjoy everyday of her life
On national television
Her diamond eyes are sparking
Bald headed like a full moon shining sing out to the whole world like HEY,

Hey I am not my hair
I am not is skin
I am not your expectation no


This song was played on the radio station I listen to everyday. The DJ was talking about the different ways women wore their hair. He was joking around on how many African American women change their hairstyles. India Arie stated in her song that she dose not have to be like other women. How you wear your hair doses not define who you are. This only happens when you know what and who you are. Change comes when you can be yourself and stand what for what is right for you.

On Monday April 21,2008 Robin Roberts on Good Morning America has breast cancer she had to shave her head because of chemotherapy so she has been wearing a wig On national television she removed her wig and said “ She is not her hair. “ This song by India Arie was playing in the back ground tears can to my eyes just sitting there looking at this women letting the world know that cancer will not control her life.

India Arie and Robin Roberts are truly apart of the movement of being yourself they both show true dedication to themselves.

Certainly this is fantastic advice that this only happens when you know what and who you are. Change comes when you can be yourself and stand what for what is right for you.
