Hair Piecez: The Anthology is a collection of thoughtful, inspiring and power packed verses. This book is revealing, funny, and on time! It is a wonderful example of original poetry, short stories, interviews, and beautiful artwork and photographs. The combined writings of thirty selected artists from across the country make for interesting and mind opening reading that will touch your heart, tickle your funny bone, and stir fond and curious memories. This anthology provides reflection and truth in such a soulful way. The Anthology illustrates the significant role that our “natural-when-born” hair plays in shaping our individual and collective consciousness from birth to death and in between, especially in our quest for psychic liberation and self-realization.
"Free to be me" is a phrase echoed again and again in Hair Piecez: The Anthology. Like many people, the journey to finding peace with who you truly are comes in many forms and often requires perseverance, courage, and loving. In between the burnt ears and no more running from the rain, I found lessons in culture and history surrounded with shouts of joy, laughter, tears, and strength. The energy and loving words the authors shared in this anthology will touch you, speak to you, comfort, and revitalize you as you travel along your own life's journey.

This is a book that every African American family must have in its library so all generations can read about and ponder the struggles and glory we as a people have experienced in order to love the total essence of our true being. Hair Piecez: The Anthology illustrates the significant role that our “natural-when-born” hair plays in shaping our individual and collective consciousness from birth to death and in between, especially in our quest for psychic liberation and self-realization.
Hair Piecez is an art and literary masterpiece that you will enjoy time and time again.

Hair Piecez: The Anthology offers a mellow journey that allows the readers to explore their own personal feelings about natural hair, health, and beauty.
What a wonderful way to both take you back and bring you forward! Hair Piecez: The Anthology brought a flood of memories, one of which was “Hold your ear”... only to have my hand burned. Thanks so much for sharing the free flow of energy.
