Our Mixed Chicks History Month person of distinction today is Solange Knowles. With all of the media hype surrounding Beyonce’s little sister and the alleged attack on Jay Z, we wanted to share a little tidbit about this firecracker. Just like Beyonce, Solange is Creole and African American. Her mother’s family is considered true French Creole with African American, French and Native American ancestry. Her father’s family is African-American.
Solange has carved out quite an impressive career. She is a successful solo artist, actress and a DJ who spins at the hottest clubs across the country when she’s not touring and performing at major festivals including Coachella.
One of the biggest things Solange has become known for her is her natural hair. She chopped off her hair in 2009 and has been rocking natural styles ever since. We champion her for loving her curls and giving us amazing curly looks to aspire too!
