Rihanna Stars In Animated Movie HOME | Positive Images of Brown Girls With Natural Hair

Photo credit: @XLNB

We came across this adorable photo on Twitter (posted by @XLNB), of the cutest little girl with natural hair, posing next to a life size poster of Tip.  Tip is the main character, played by Rihanna,  in Dreamwork's Animated film Home. 

Of course, we love all things @badgalriri, but the image of natural hair and the little girl smiling so proudly next to the photo is what caught our eye. This does not happen often. Yes, we love Princess and the Frog and all of the other positive images of brown girls in Hollywood. We absolutely adored the recent remake of Annie, where Quvenzhané Wallis starring alongside big names like Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz, wore naturally curly hair. HOME is another shinning example of positive images in the media or might we say Hollywood, which makes a statement that little brown girls are naturally beautiful with their kinks, coils, curls and waves. 

HOME premiers in theaters March 27th, 2015. 

Who's going to see Home with the little ones?
