As founder of #writemyhair hashtag and author, it’s important to emphasize the unmatched beauty, divine and powerful nature of African American or African, black hair using my own mane. Enjoy.

#writemyhair SideWinder

May 15, 2017

Pinned down to the side, they tried to force it straight. Yet, it defies all unnatural rules like a Sidewinder snake.

#writemyhair The Life of a Boss Book

May 7, 2017

#Books live by their own creed. #Authors either make good on it or stick to that verbal stuff at the mic. 😎 mirikacornelius.com #writemyhair (strands fall across my face in simple twists, laying across my lips…of course…here’s an innocent kiss) #authorsofinstagram #Naturalhair #blackauthors #blackhair A post shared by Mirika Mayo Cornelius – author (@mirikacofficial) on […]
