Also, s/o to #HairLove for bringing a lot more needed attention to the #TheCrownAct.
BUT consider this: in 2020, there still needs to be a law passed to protect the rights of black people wearing their hair the way they want to.

I remember when I was a little girl in school and some of the kids would say “why is your hair so crunchy and hard”. I would come home crying to my momma and she would tell me that I had beautiful hair, yet people teased me so it was hard to believe. Then later on I’d be on the sets where none of the hairdressers knew how to do my hair. I would either come with braids already done, or have to spend time in the room with the few minutes I had left to fix whatever they had done before going to film... As a little girl that was a source of anxiety for me “uh oh, the hair conversation” but as I got older the more I stopped letting others project their ignorance and confusion about my hair on to me. Just because someone else doesn’t understand it, doesn’t mean you have to own it. I am who I am and it just is what it is. 😍💕🙌🏾🙏🏾
“Baby. Weaves, locs, braids, fro. I’m here with it,” she said. “Still with the organic lay and slay. Get into this. Are you kidding me pooh?”
