NOMMO - HELP! I Wanna Go NATURAL! Fri 30th March 2012

Nommo is the, monthly interactive session for the Afrikan community, presented by the Alkebu-Lan Revivalist Movement. On the last Friday of every month, you can rap, reason and re-energise with like-minded Sisters and Brothers through film, music and the spoken word in its many forms.
The next session....

First hand tips & guidance for Sisters who have recently gone, or are considering GOING NATURAL! Even those who have been Natural for a while, we guarantee you something new to take in! Come & share your thoughts & the lessons you have learned on your journey! 

This Nommo will be facilitated by our Sisters from 


Debrose Brown Searchwell
"I am a raw foodist, a newly qualified Zumba instructor, a Sisterlocks and natural Afro hair care consultant. I have been wearing my hair natural all of my adult life and am almost 3 years into my Sisterlocks™ journey. Straight after my last exam at school, I got my friend to shave off all of my relaxed hair, and I haven't looked back."

Charlene Redway
"I had relaxed hair from the age of 16 and I developed Alopecia Areata at the age of 22 after a string of other illnesses. It was roughly when I was 23-24 that I started to do my own research and find natural ways to encourage growth and to combat symptoms. Thank God I did this as my hair grew back!"

The aim of Natural November is to offer an alternative and to showcase the very best in natural hair and beauty products, Afrocentric fashion and accessories, cultural art and crafts, inspiring books and educational seminars. There is an on-going battle with the negative stereotypes that we are constantly bombarded with by the media, so it is important to be educated and to portray natural health and beauty in a positive light, as well as supporting and networking with other like-minded individuals.

"NOMMO can be thought, NOMMO can be played on an instrument, NOMMO can be sung. It is prayer. It is curse. It is incantation! NOMMO is a praise song. NOMMO is our use of the spiritually activating principle. NOMMO is will and intent. NOMMO is consciousness."
