Event Theme: Hair Politics

Event Question: Why is natural hair, unlike skin, an area of dispute with regard to racism, and racist laws and policy?

On Sept. 15, 2016, in a 3-0 ruling, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a claim from a 2014 ruling that said racial discrimination had to be based on characteristics that didn’t change, and that hairstyles don’t qualify as “immutable.” (Huffington Post)
