A few months ago while watching MSNBC I ran across an interview of Tristan Walker, CEO & founder Walker & Company, specializing in creating shaving products for men with “coarse curly hair”. After a few minutes of watching the interview and seeing shots of the razor and its accompanying grooming items I was intrigued. I also learned that Mr. Walker played an integral part in the early success of tech startup Foursquare, so this is not his first time at the Entrepreneur’s Ball!
I’ve always been one who was intrigued by innovation and creativity, but it was particularly refreshing to see an African-American promoting and selling a product like this. The hair & beauty industry is not a space African-Americans are normally active in, on an ownership level, and when they are it isn’t in this capacity.
After deciding to support the product I sent an email blast to my circle of influence, and shortly there after placed my order. What follows is my unboxing the product as well as my initial thoughts.

For those of you that have been following some of my projects and this blog you will know that this Waving Flag Documentary has been one that I hold near and dear to my heart. Since beginning this project I have been to several colleges and universities including and open panel discussion at SMU (view their article here) and Midwestern University.
Myself and fellow film producer D Sols spoke about what it was like growing up as foreigners in America, and many of the obstacles ourselves friends and family members overcame. We discussed the unfair portrayals of us in the media and the numerous misconceptions people had about our beloved country.
While shooting this film we discovered several things, first of which is that the experiences we had were not unique to only us but in fact everyone in the film. But what was even more interesting is that these experiences were not unique to us as Nigerians. As we spoke to and showed the film to other fellow Africans from Somalia to Eritrea, Sudan, Egypt, Liberia, Kenya the story remained the same, and thus the influence of our project grew. Oddly enough as foreigners from other continents and countries viewed our film the sentiments and experiences remained the same. Continue reading ‘Waving Flag Film Release – Available Now’
