FORT LAUDERDALE– The 35-year-old South Florida beauty institution Hair in the Spirit (H.I.T.S.) will highlight the importance of mental health with its inaugural H.I.T.S. on Fifth event featuring a conversation between acclaimed actor and activist Lamman Rucker and media personality and author Tambra Cherie at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, Aug. 20 at 6 p.m.

We want to teach people how to embrace, how to communicate with love, patience and understanding,” said Faye Bailey Lucas, H.I.T.S. Founder. “We will also hear about mental illness and how it is a hidden cause of unhealthy relationships. If we have healthier relationships in our community, we can be more productive in economic growth, strengthening families and fostering safer environments.
