Madam Walkers Braidery & School is hosting the S.E.L.F. Image Awards II, to honor the Industry Leaders in the Natural Hair Care Industry who have given training, employment, selflove and empowerment to men and women. We intend to support facilities that provide shelter, training, therapy and care to those who are in crisis and affected by Domestic Violence. On September 24th, 2011 we will come together, once again, as a family, to break bread, be entertained, rub shoulders with the heavy hitters, network and embrace the opportunity to pay forward our many blessings.
