Good Hair

A well-known beauty industry icon will be the guest speaker at an event sponsored by the local chapter of The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Club, Inc.
Dr. Eunice M. Dudley is scheduled to speak at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Mount Heroden Baptist Church, said Barbara Johnson, the president of the local chapter.
Dudley currently serves as the executive director for the Dudley Beauty School System, which is a school system designed to develop professional cosmetologists, nail technologists, managers and instructors. Schools are located in the District of Columbia, Chicago and Charlotte and Kernersville, N.C.
“We are so excited that Dr. Dudley will be our keynote speaker,” said Johnson.
She is a sought-after African-American female business leader and it is great that Vicksburg has secured someone of her caliber, Johnson said.
Dudley and her husband, Joe L. Dudley, Sr. were featured in the national movie, “Good Hair,” which was a Chris Rock documentary that aired in 2009 about the hair care industry.
There will be no admission to hear Dudley speak, said Johnson.
The NANBPWC has also scheduled a fashion show at 7 p.m. Friday at the Vicksburg City Auditorium, which will be followed by a Red and White Gala at 9. DJ Reo will provide music for the event and tickets art $20 and available at the door or by calling 601-415-2972.
The local chapter of the NANBPWC was organized in 1969, Johnson said, and its goal is to promote business and professional women and young entrepreneurs.
Johnson said, the group is also involved in community services including meals on wheels, women in the military, domestic violence, women’s history and the United Negro College Fund. NANBPWC also awards scholarships to Warren Central and Vicksburg High School students.
The church is at 1117 Clay St. and the auditorium is at 901 Monroe St.
For more information, call 601-415-2972.

About Terri Cowart Frazier

Terri Frazier was born in Cleveland. Shortly afterward, the family moved to Vicksburg. She is a part-time reporter at The Vicksburg Post and is the editor of the Vicksburg Living Magazine, which has been awarded First Place by the Mississippi Press Association. She has also been the recipient of a First Place award in the MPA’s Better Newspaper Contest’s editorial division for the “Best Feature Story.”

Terri graduated from Warren Central High School and Mississippi State University where she received a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in public relations.

Prior to coming to work at The Post a little more than 10 years ago, she did some freelancing at the Jackson Free Press. But for most of her life, she enjoyed being a full-time stay at home mom.

Terri is a member of the Crawford Street United Methodist Church. She is a lifetime member of the Vicksburg Junior Auxiliary and is a past member of the Sampler Antique Club and Town and Country Garden Club. She is married to Dr. Walter Frazier.

“From staying informed with local governmental issues to hearing the stories of its people, a hometown newspaper is vital to a community. I have felt privileged to be part of a dedicated team at The Post throughout my tenure and hope that with theirs and with local support, I will be able to continue to grow and hone in on my skills as I help share the stories in Vicksburg. When asked what I like most about my job, my answer is always ‘the people.’
