Nappy by Nature Book Release

Video shot and edited by Adrina Fanore

On the eve of her four-year NYC-anniversary, founder Charell Strong released her most personal and vulnerable project to date: Nappy by Nature.

The book release was March 16th in Harlem at the Club by Dominik Mager, a new hair salon in Harlem. Guests enjoyed complimentary drinks from Harlem Brewery and sweet treats while networking with professionals and creatives from a variety of industries. Charell read a passage from the book and was available to sign copies and take pictures. The support and love in the room was overwhelming.

Nappy by Nature donated a portion of all book sales and all raffle proceeds to the Peek-a-Boo Pretty girl foundation. $250 was donated and hopefully, with more book sales, more donations will be made to other organizations that build young girls confidence and self-esteem.

Thank you to Eli Smith for capturing the event and the below sponsors for donating to the gift bags and raffle. Guests took home items ranging from pins and trap aerobics classes to sweatshirts and books!
