Panelists discuss questions relating to incidents of 2020, hair stigma, hair discrimination, policies, students’ perspectives on career options regarding natural hair in the workplace, updates since the CROWN Act inception, how hair shapes health, and “what to do if” — your rights in hair discrimination. Panelists include Dr. Bernice Rumala, Co-founder of CROWN Campaign; Shemekka Ebony, Co-founder of CROWN Campaign; Karen Thompson, Attorney at law, NJ Chapter of the ACLU; Christina Anderson, MPH Candidate Health Systems/Health Policy, Black Public Health Student Alliance; and Amber Rockson, MPH Candidate Epidemiology, Black Public Health Student Alliance.
