She came in the game rocking her natural hair, spitting intellectual lyrics and sporting a beautiful brown-skinned face that turned the heads of millions. With her iconic album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, she struck a cord with fans around the world with her perspectives on social issues, love and self-development.
And though her musical output is slow, Lauryn continues to give back, recently support some education projects in the Dominican Republic. She said,
“I think when you talk about a people being oppressed, it is important to look at who is actively oppressing them and then try to understand why. The amount of effort put into that act is usually a direct reflection of the potential those oppressed people possess and what their contribution could be under other circumstances.”
Keep on giving back Lauryn……and throw an album in there too!
