Dominican Republic Black Pride

In this Sept. 27, 2013 photo, 10-year-old Germaris Hernandez adjusts her headband as she watches a theater performance by the company “Arbol Maravilloso” or “Wonderful Tree” that that encourages black children to wear their hair natural instead of straightening it, through a fairy tale story, in Moca, Dominican Republic. The theater group has visited schools across the country to spread the word among black children that their features and heritage should be a source of pride. (AP Photo/Manuel Diaz)
