BREAKING: LDF won a major #naturalhair discrimination VICTORY that gives K.B., Black high school student & cousin to #DeAndreArnold, the right to attend classes regularly as opposed to being held in indefinite in-school suspension due to his natural hair.…

good morning, especially to any other black women and men who are not fully confident in/comfortable with their natural hair. i see you working on yourself, too 🖤
lupus and genetics = my hair is thin+probably weak. i still dk what im doing but she still grows

i don't need compliments.. just full #selflove which is still in progress

PS no, i won't wear my hair on TV. too much work and it needs protective styling+care vs manipulation 🤷🏾‍♀️ Image
if you're natural - or have been natural for years, like me - and still are working to fall in love with your kinks/coils/curls (and the process that goes along with it), that's OKAY.

#SelfLove is hard. Take your time.

2/ From schools & salons to jobs & airports, racial bias is often distilled into policies that disproportionately target Black people. These policies limit Black mobility by forcing individuals to decide whether or not compliance is worth sacrificing a part of their identity.
3/The fight against #naturalhair bias isn't new to LDF. Last June, Assoc. Director-Counsel @JNelsonLDF delivered testimony before the House addressing @TSA body scanners&policies that disproportionately subject Black women to addt’l screenings at airports.
