Seminole Scenes: October 2020

BENEFICIAL BOOK: Seminole Tribe siblings Julius and Jy were featured in a Jacksonville TV news report about the paperback book they wrote to explain the importance of heritage, in particular natural hair. “We saw a lot of kids getting discriminated against because of their natural hair. We just felt like we should make a book about it to tell kids why their hair is so special,” Jy told News4Jax in a segment that aired Oct. 21. Their book is titled “The Miseducation of Natural Hair” and is available on Amazon and Google Books. Julius and Jy used proceeds from the book to purchase diapers for the Miles of Diapers collection drive which helps families in need of diapers, formula and wipes. (Photo via News4Jax)
