The corporate world yet to embrace Black hair.

An interesting video on Black hair in the workplace.  What's your experience as a Black woman with natural hair in a cooperate environment?  I could write a book about it.  The corporate world is yet to embrace us.  I get "I looove your hair, but it's just not appropriate..."

What defines "Appropriate hair?"  Is there a standard definition, or is there a standard, one that us black women have been made to abide by?

Black hair in Western society has long been a political movement.  This movement is far from over.  The world is yet to embrace the marvelous, luscious, big, and curly manes that is naturally bestowed upon us.  Kinky hair is here to stay.

Thanks for reading.
I appreciate you.
