Hair She Buzz! Tamron Hall Co-hosts Today Show | A Mane Attraction BookBuzz | Your Hair is Your History this Women’s History Month
February 26, 2014
DryerBuzz Entertainment Buzz — Women’s History Month ~ Your Hair is your History!
Hair She Buzz! As we usher in Women’s History Month, let’s get it buzzing with women already creating buzz and with a quick history lesson from DryerBuzz.com
Your hair is your history. In such a time and explosion of natural hair, we witnessed more and more women learning for the first time, the real texture of their hair, it’s care, and maintenance — which begs the question — if one is unfamiliar with her hair — is she unfamiliar with her history?
In my eyes, Janelle Monae rocks an Ida B Wells. Today’s natural hair is our grandmother’s we afro. Except in grandmother’s days, we owned the business of hair and products and it sustained rather than drained our communities. History lessons flowed like tresses when we sat at the hem of our grandmother’s dresses but then came the presses and away went the lessons.
Somebody told the granddaughter of a civil rights leader how her grandfather was a conductor. She thought he drove a train, what is wrong with her brain – a real choo choo to freedom. She wears too many tracks, no history lessons to take her back. So let’s grab hold of her and all those alike – this is a fight — they gonna learn today or shall we say this Women’s History Month – March – the real story of women.
We’re behind in our times, let’s start with our minds as we salute women creating buzz — #HairSheBuzz – in the buzz this week

Some call her a Shoefessional! because she knows a thing or two about women’s shoes. Leslie says there’s a special relationship between a woman and her shoes. No one could understand but a fellow shoe lover. Having worked with designers and artists, the shoefessional found the designing creative process fascinating. She started Shoefessional.com after a co-worker noticed her love of shoes and took her retail suggestions to the next level with shoefessional.com #HairSheBuzz

A miracle happened… says newser Melissa Harris Perry
More and more women are starting families are shall we say second families. Wanting to experience joys of motherhood — after success — in a more calmer time of life. Yet many find road to motherhood not as easy so they turn to unconventional methods that for many — have become the norm.
America’s favorite newser, Melissa Harris Perry shared her Valentine Joy with followers of her show – no it wasn’t flowers or candy – who knew she and husband James Perry were anxiously awaiting arrival of a bouncing baby girl – whom Perry describes as their miracle baby.
Perry says she experienced years suffering from agony of uterine fibroids. Finally, in 2008, after fighting back with an arsenal of homeopathic and medical weapons, decided to have her uterus removed. she wept for the children she would never have and made peace with the idea that one was enough.
Destiny was yet fulfilled for Melissa. She later met her husband who settled into role of co-parenting her only child, but they wanted more children and chose surrogacy — after much advice and counsel. Perry says their Valentine bundle took two families, three states, four doctors, and five attorneys to get this little girl here. Taking time off from MHP show, at 40 raising a teen and now infant, Perry tells fans in a blog, her family is ready for sleepless nights, anxious moments and inexpressible joy with the new addition to their family. #HairSheBuzz

“Who taught you to hate the color of your skin? Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair? Who taught you to hate the shape of your nose and the shape of your lips? Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet? Who taught you to hate your own kind? Who taught you to hate the race that you belong to so much so that you don’t want to be around each other? No… Before you come asking Mr. Muhammad does he teach hate, you should ask yourself who taught you to hate being what God made you.” (May 22, 1962, Los Angeles) via Janks Morton

Bernice King and brothers fight over MLK possessions | George Zimmerman wants to fight more black men | Black History? | DryerBuzz Entertainment Buzz
February 5, 2014
DryerBuzz Entertainment Buzz — Wednesday Woman: Dr Bernice A King
Watch to end for special black history moment with Rev Joseph Lowery – Are you on right side of history?
Raw Transcript: It’s time to get it buzzing
After mourning and commemorating her father and then her mother, with anniversary of their deaths coming both in January, Bernice King, daughter of slain civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr, now has a fight with her brothers. Can MLK offsprings overcome?
Bad enough that every org in town [Atlanta] better recognizes MLK holiday over the King center, now comes the selling of, or shall we say alleged attempts to sell prized possessions of Dr Martin Luther King for money. It’s Black history month. How do we even have history when legacies can’t seem to transfer among multi-generations?
Buzz behind th buzz, Dr. Bernice A. King. issued a press statement saying that her brothers, Dexter Scott King and Martin Luther King, III, whom she loves dearly, but clearly are prepared to fight over alleged impending sell of her fathers prized possessions — his Nobel Peace Prize Medal and his personal Bible — which was used by President Barack Obama as he was sworn in for his second term in office and subsequently signed by him. Where they do that?
The surviving daughter of MLK says she is “appalled and utterly ashamed, frankly disappointed that her brothers would even entertain the thought of selling such precious items. She went on to say this reveals desperation beyond comprehension. And then even leveled a scripture at her two siblings… As Mark 8:36 teaches, “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?” Daughter of King, says their Martin Luther King Jr “ MUST be turning in his grave.” Don’t forget Bernice King is a minister of the Gospel.
DryerBuzz is invited to a press conference which should take place in days to come at Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church.
As we said it is black history month….
So why is Georgia Zimmerman trending… bueller bueller…
Having gotten away with murder (as is opinion of most), is Zimmerman saying he’s now ready to fight without weapons and wants to be the next celebrity boxer — with any number of black men as his proposed opponents? Where they do that… We bring you this report on Feb 5 — Trayvon Martin’s birthday — it’s time to call out some folks OK! in other buzz — Black Social media wants yet again to honor Trayvon Martin with pictorials and profile avatar changes — however hoodies without dollars does nada when the killer has become a celebrity AND can raise more money than a foundation named in honor of the slain teen. Wear your hoodie and do goodie – give to the Trayvon Martin foundation so the slain does not die in vein.

DryerBuzz Entertainment Report…
Raw Transcript: Looking for the buzz… you found it – This is DryerBuzz.com Entertainment Report – Let’s get it buzzing – what day is it – yes it’s humpday but it’s also time for Wednesday Woman – women you ought to know and buzz.
Rewind… back to the Golden Globes … back to 12 Years a Slave… and yes we had to search for her almost like a runaway slave. We didn’t see her as the cast came out for the awards … yet Adepero Oduye made a lasting impression on me as one of the films stars. Her scene, the scene of “Let Me Weep Solomon” remains on my heart and i think was one of the most pivotal scenes in the movie – one somewhat overlooked if you ask me. It is the scene where the main character give his speech of waiting for freedom’s opportune — but where are we if no one weeps for women and children – you already know – we are here where we are today. We’ve got to stop missing the story of women and children. Our Wednesday Woman is Adepero Oduye from 12 Years a Slave. I want you to follow her buzz. Pick up her trail in social media. Amazing. See how she was thrust into the path of acting. Discover her previous work and awards. Follow and support her in social media. “Let Me Weep Solomon.”
What is Sochi – Sochi is a couple of things, but as it relates to conversations you’re over hearing along with news items and trends, it refers to the winter olympics. If you hear people talking about going to Sochi – they are going to the Olympics. Winter Olympics gets a bit a shade. One, because its cold as … well let’s just say it’s a different season of sports. There’s ice skating, skiing, speed skating and more. The programming doesn’t inundate television like summer olympics. But it is still exciting. Many athletes are finding out right now if they made Olympic teams and have to prepare right away for the trip to the Black Sea Region. While some are highly endorsed, others are counting on you and you can help an athlete get there – many have launched crowdfunding and you’ll find their campaigns on popular crowdfunding sites.
