Like all things G-Entertainment Magazine started as a Dream, but unlike the great poem written by Lagston Hughes this dream was not deferred. LaToya & Harold Abram, Jr., the brains behind the publication, constantly thank God for bringing this dream into fruition. G-Entertainment started as a promotional group during ’06-’07. The concept of the magazine came about during the Fall of 2011. “I wanted to work on a magazine for a long time, but I couldn’t get anybody to really help me out with my idea.” (Harold) Due to the lack of people backing my concept Toya asked me to work with others already in the industry.

Growing up it was the norm for little black girls and black women to have Relaxers to straighten their hair. So now that years have gone by and times have changed I ask you all… Why do some of us as black women still feel that we need to relax our hair?
Black women have natural curly or kinky hair, which most people would call “nappy” hair. At one time in the work place it was frowned upon or considered unprofessional to not have pressed or relaxed hair, as a result many black women resorted to the chemical relaxer. The relaxer would straighten our natural curl making us look a little more “corporate.”
