[PAST EVENT] Adjusting Your Crown: The History of Black Hair and the CROWN Act

December 7, 2020
7pm - 8:30pm
Access & Features
  • Open to the public
  • Registration/RSVP

The CROWN Coalition established the CROWN Act in 2019. This is a movement to eliminate discrimination of race-based hairstyles.

Have you ever felt the need to change your natural hair texture to fit a professional “norm”? Has your natural hair ever been ridiculed for its texture and appearance?

We will be joined by three panelists for a discussion of the history and language around black hair. We will also discuss the CROWN Act and its implications for people of color in America. Interested in learning more about the CROWN Act prior to our discussion? Visit https://www.thecrownact.com/.
