FBF: Natural Hair in the Workplace and Around the World

 #FBF Barbados was amazing. So many lushes fields of rolling hills that lead straight to the ocean.
I also fell in love with the island because of its people. They're upbeat, charming , and have an overwhelming
appreciation for natural locks. It almost caught me by surprise.
But, with all the appreciation came a bit of frustration, of how natural hair is viewed in the  corporate work place.

"Its unprofessional", " Its can be distracting" Its too ethnic"...YES! YOU HEARD IT! A news director told me "Its too Ethnic."


I'm Lucky enough to be currently working at a network that allows me to show the viewers that natural hair is beautiful, professional and versatile (as long as it not TOO crazy..lol).


But there are still so many women in the broadcasting field and all over the world who are dealing  with this form of modern racism. And bloggers, political activist and women of all backgrounds are speaking up!



What are your thoughts???
