Ons is kroes
Natural hair has been stigmatized all our lives.
We women of colour have struggled with kroes comments,
comments like “do you swim with a Shoprite plastic on your head?”,
comments like “maak plan met daai kop”.
But this is us, owning who we are.
This is us, no longer negotiating our identities.
Ons is kroes, fok jou.
