So much so that when asked how angry I was that top-performing Mystic Valley Regional Charter School in Massachusetts (USA) was banning girls from wearing their hair in long braids (I’m the author of the recently published book: How to Grow Longer Hair whilst wearing Weaves, Wigs & Braids, Like I did.), my response wasn’t what was expected. Have a listen here:
Because of the discrimination suffered by black girls and women who want to wear their natural hair, the motive of schools and places of work have rightly come under great scrutiny and is thus the main focus.
So for now, until the dust settles, I’ll continue whistling into the wind.
