Introducing The Fabric of Change – Education to Inspire Racial Equality

Friday, 19 June 2020 18:12

Lasting change won’t happen overnight, but we must continue to educate and work for equal representation!” says Sam Villa who is co-hosting The Fabric of Change event on June 28th with Tippi Shorter, Global Artistic Director for Mizani (co-sponsored by Pivot Point International). 

A talented roster of black educators and influencers, including Marquetta Beslin, Leysa Carrillo, Yene Damtew, Jamal Edmonds, Vernon Francois, Evie Johnson, Shannon King, Felicia Leatherwood, Cynthia Lumzy, Keya Neal, Neeko, Michelle O’Connor, Rachel Redd, Rodrick Samuels and Joie Wallace, will awaken and inspire equality.

Inherent in my message has always been to respect and support each other. Now, more than ever, please let us extend that respect and support to the black community. We recognize that there’s racial bias in our industry, and we’re looking at our practices to ensure we continue to become more inclusive,” says Villa.

I’ve always made it a point to highlight incredible artists on my platforms and am honored to join Sam in celebrating these incredible stylists and moving the needle forward within the beauty industry,” explains Shorter.

Goals of The Fabric of Change Event:

1. Change the perception that hair texture is directly linked to the race of the hairdresser – all hairdressers should embrace and be skilled in all hair textures.
2. Change the way education is provided to be more inclusive – black hairdressers and educators have been under-represented on stage and online.

Each artist will have a 30 minute segment live-streamed simultaneously on both Facebook: @SamVillaPros  and YouTube: @SamVillaHair starting at 10:00EST until 7:00pmEST on Sunday, June 28th.  ALL are welcome to hit the donation button benefitting the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) to help support equality and end racism. Prizes from Pivot Point, Sam Villa, and others will also be awarded throughout the event!

Please join to listen, learn and promote lasting change within the industry
