One of our major author events of the Summer was Body Art & Books at Lost City Books. Empress (Kidist James), my sistarfriend, joined me on the panel for the discussion of "Hennaglyphics." She is a Podcaster, YouTuber, Jewelry Designer and Co-Owner of the Vintage Clothing Store and Cafe Shop WnWnn(Waste Not Want Not) in The Gambia. Presently she is documenting her repatriation, building projects and homesteader journey to The Gambia on her YouTube Channel "Global Green Book". She is also the creator of TIEbyKidist, a lifestyle brand focusing on "Bridging Two Worlds Together, The Diaspora & African." Moreover, she has been with me on this henna journey for years as a client and she has read the book. So it was great to have her input on this new release. Connect with her on youtube, ig, or fb.
DC gave us a warm welcome and we enjoyed it to the fullest. Some of the places we visited was Swahili Village, Bus Boys & Poets, and Sankofa Book Store. "Hennaglyphics: How to Henna," is now in stock & available on the Rites of Passage Institute website and Lost City Books!
Check out the videos below for the recap where we discuss the parts of the book "Hennaglyphics."
