Book Release Event: June 30, 2013
We are pleased to invite you to Lurie’s first book release event on Sunday June 30, 2013 at Sabine’s Hallway Natural Hair Salon (details below). There you will hear from the author and be among the first to purchase her newly released book, Afro State of Mind: Memories of A Nappy Headed Black Girl.
Memories of A Nappy Headed Black Girl is not your typical natural hair book. This is not a “how-to manual” for hair care and styles. It is not a “twist this way” or “moisturize that way” book. This book is a coming of age story about a Black girl learning to love her hair and by extension learning to love herself.
The book recalls the moments when Lurie first discovered that nappy hair was a “problem” in search of a solution. She describes her youthful search for something – anything – to make her hair straight (and keep it straight) so that she could finally be considered one of the “good hair” girls.
You’ll laugh and cry as she recounts her experiences when her Big Chop went wrong. She writes about finding love as a natural girl – even though she did not meet the definition of a Black girl with “pretty hair”. You will be entertained (and a bit horrified) as she describes her experiences as a natural head abroad and surprised at the ways in which natural hair is viewed around the world.
Lurie is honest about her trials as a natural head in corporate America and freely shares her hopes for the future of the natural hair movement.

Lurie wrote this book because she believes:
