BACK TO MY ROOTS

Another of my favorite RuPaul videos. Back To My Roots followed Super Model and House of Love upon RuPaul's arrival on the scene. The house/dance track is a tribute to black women's hairstyles as well as to the tradition of community often found in urban hair salons.  She also names several of her relatives including her mother Ernestine Charles, who at the time owned a hair salon in Atlanta, Georgia. His mother is played by comedienne LaWanda Page, who worked with Ru on several videos, with voice work or starring parts.  I remember hitting the floor with dancing and runways with this song..... Fun way to start the day....Peace, love, and hair grease!!!!!! Love all the wigs.
