The British gave up their last colonies in Africa half a century ago. But they left their wigs behind. Not just any wigs. They are the long, white, horsehair locks worn by high court judges (and King George III). They are so old-fashioned and so uncomfortable, that even British barristers have stopped wearing them. But in former British colonies — Kenya, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Malawi and others — they live on, worn by judges and lawyers. Now, a new generation of African jurists is asking: Why are the continent's most prominent legal minds still wearing the trappings of the colonizers? It's not just a question of aesthetics. The wigs and robes are perhaps the most glaring symbol of colonial inheritance at a time when that history is being dredged up in all sorts of ways. This year, Tanzanian President John Magufuli described a proposed free-trade agreement with Europe as a "form of colonialism." In Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe still refers to the British as "thieving colonialists." In June, the premier of the Western Cape province of South Africa was suspended from her party after writing on Twitter that modern health care was a colonial contribution. The relics of colonialism are scattered across the continent. There are the queen's namesakes: Victoria Falls north of Zimbabwe; Lake Victoria, bordering three countries in eastern Africa; Victoria Island in Nigeria. There is the left-lane driving, the cricket, the way public education is organised (not organized). Most cities and streets have received new names since European rule ended. In 2013, Mugabe officially rebaptized Victoria Falls "Mosi Oa Tunya," or "the smoke that thunders" in the Kololo language. Yet the wig survives, along with other relics of the colonial courtroom: red robes, white bows, references to judges as "my lord" and "my lady." In nearly every former British colony, op-eds have been written and speeches made about why the wig ought to be removed. In Uganda, the New Vision newspaper conducted an investigation into the cost of the wigs, reporting that each one cost $6,500. 😒😴 #freeyourmind #selflove #takethewigoff #decolonizeyourmind #africa #washingtonpost #slavementality 👇👇👇

Happy 1st Day of Autumn! It's that time of year again, my favorite season to snap pictures of the Nation's Capital in its charming warm colors. Until the leaves change colors and I get my camera ready, here are some pictures to enjoy, taken from one of my favorite sights in the fall, the Jefferson Memorial. Hope this autumn brings you all a happy and cozy feeling at heart, countless blessings, and lots of warm pumpkin spice. Happy Friday everyone! 🍁🎃🍂 #autumn #tgif #dclife

I love getting lost in the streets of DC. Colors, textures, and that rustic feel that make DC's architecture look like a beautiful painting coming to life #dclife
