Natural Hair casting on MTV by GriotsHouseVince Natural Hair casting on MTV by GriotsHouseVince
pgp283: MTV, True Life and Going Natural

MTV recently announced a casting call for Black women ages 15-28 for its reality show TRUE LIFE. The subject: Black Women Going Natural. While Chime "HairCrush" Edwards of BlackLikeMOI.com expressed concern regarding MTV's ability to accurately illustrate the depth of what it means for a black woman to go natural, she did go on to say, "Hopefully, this episode of True Life will help African Americans learn to support those who decide to go natural and to embrace their own natural hair..."

Do you think this show will provide a positive, in depth portrayal of the natural hair journey and what do you think African American girls and women will take from it. Does MTV have the ability to handle this subject in a thoughtful manner?

You know, I have been trying to follow up on the story that this image was created to illustrate but I haven't heard anything. I don't know if they've finished or started filming or anything. Have you heard something?

The image is of an a young sista named Morgan and its part of a series that was featured in a Sunday in Pangea's Garden
