12 Year Old Black Student in Florida almost Expelled From School Over Her Natural Hair
I saw this story last night and I thought how bizarre this story was. That a school would side with the bullies on the case of twelve year old Vanessa VanDyke. I’m very concern with the latest vitriol aim at African American girls over their hair. As a mom to an eight years old girl, it’s very disheartening to hear about these stories.
Though, I am relieved to hear this Florida Christian school is backing off their threats to expel her, but the situation, in my opinion, remained muddle. With natural hair styles becoming more and more popular everyday, will these kind of stories become the norm. State your opinion below!
One day, the natural state of our hair will be normal just like everyone else. I will keep rocking my fantastic fro until then! 🙂 #teamnaturalhair
