the what’s underneath project: kelsey lu mcjunkins

July 28, 2014

We asked Kelsey to be a part of the What’s Underneath Project because she bears witness to our belief that style…

Is comfort in your own skin,
Is not a facade
Is your spirit,
Is What’s Underneath.

Kelsey’s a professional cellist who was “discovered” by Nappy Roots. More so, she possesses a very breathtaking story. Raised in a Jehovah’s Witness community by a black dad and white mom in North Carolina, Kelsey had to escape through her bedroom window in order pursue her true love — the cello. As a means to pay for books and rent, she stripped, which Kelsey talks about with gutsy poise and honesty. She is just so compelling.
