update on hair win!
Updated: Jul 16, 2022
We continue the fight in gaining the rights to wear & celebrate our crowns. Crowns referring to our hair or hairstyles in our African-American culture. Slaying our natural texture that we were born with in its organic state with all our coils, braids, twists, locs, or Afros in public spaces. The House Passes the Crown Act! The C.R.O.W.N. Act passed last week this will ban race-based hair discrimination! As of July 16, 2022 16 states have passed the Crown Act. https://www.glamour.com/story.the-crown-act-banning-hair-discrimination/amp
It's personal. I wrote about my hair raising story for our non-profit book club, CWGLA in my personal coming-of-age hair story, "Hair Chronicles" which highlights the bond of family and our plight with hair discrimination that has plagued our people over the generations. I dedicate my story to my Late Grand Mother and Mother for instilling family hair traditions into my life. Share with me your Hair tales and experiences. All proceeds of Snapshots Volume 7 benefit sending students to college and the mission of CWGLA.
