Celebrities like Eddie Murphy, Rick James, Michael Jackson, James Brown, and many others wore the 'doo' which our culture embraced whole heartily.
Orlando, my Ancestral home, is a far different place now than I remember. We have lived in Orlando going back seven generations on my mother’s maternal side, that we know of.
