Are you planning to be anywhere near Dallas, Texas on September 3rd? Time to book your tickets, natural ladies — because Erykah Badu is hosting a Natural Hair Parade & Festival in her hometown.

The celebration is the brainchild of famed, Dallas-based natural hair stylist Isis Brantley. “We’re calling for sponsors, schools, churches, community organizations, bands, clubs, parents, and children of all ages to join us as we celebrate and share knowledge,” she said in a press release.

Her good friend Badu has challenged her to get four hundred people to march in the parade! To help reach her goal, Isis is asking natural ladies to send out the following tweet: “Natural Hair Parade & Festival by @Naturallyisis Sept. 3, 2011 Dallas, TX #Naturalhair #Laboroflove FREE RSVP.”
