Miriam Tigist Green was adopted by Clifton Green and his wife. Whilst at home they had no idea what to do with her hair, as both had no experience in braiding. So they considered letting it go as a sign of freedom. But after they both knew that her hair was a strong sign of her African roots so they decided to braid it like most African people did. Although it took a while, Clifton finally mastered the art of braiding.
This is dope. I know some of the others might look at it as a negative because they don’t think white parents should ever adopt black kids but I can at least appreciate the sentiment that they’ve tried to preserve some of her history and heritage by braiding her hair.
I Love It :-)
This is all beautiful and what not, but we really gonna sit here and ignore that fork?
