Hair

‑Tracee Ellis Ross

-Junauda Petrus

Rest

"I remember one night at Muzdalifa with nothing but the sky overhead I lay awake amid sleeping Muslim brothers and I learned that pilgrims from every land -- every color, and class, and rank: high officials and the beggar alike-- all snored in the same language."
