So this is interesting… Atlant events promoter, social media manager and FAMU graduate ‘Joey Digital’ is offering discounts for women with natural hair. Check out this excerpt from his website:
Over the years, I’ve professed my utter disdain for weave, and love for natural hair (see: Anti-Weave List). And now I’m putting my money where my mouth is: giving $10 off tickets to my Atlanta Classic Post-Game Affair (Sat 9/24), and $5-$10 discounts to my FAMU Homecoming event introducing NUVO Lemon Sorbet (Fri 10/7) and The Art of Celebration (Sat 10/8). Heck, I just might give them invitations to the private Crown Royal Black “Crown Life Lounge” on the Thursday of FAMU’s Homecoming.
All women with natural hair simply have to do is use the code “natural” when purchasing tickets using the links below:
Atlanta Classic: Society of the Crown at 200 Peachtree (Your ticket will be just $10)
FAMU Homecoming: A Special Evening Introducing NUVO Lemon Sorbet at Mary Brogan (Your ticket will be just $10)
FAMU Homecoming: The Art of Celebration at the IMAX (Your ticket will be just $10)
As someone who hosts events that are open to both natural and relaxed women, I’m not sure how I feel about this. I would hate if natural vs weave became yet another division within the black community. Ladies, what is your take?
