Natural Hair Is “Unacceptable”

Deborah Brown Community School in Oklahoma “hassled” Tiana Parker’s parents about her dreadlocks. According to Tiana’s father, Terrance Parker, she attended the school for a year without problems with her hair. Nevertheless, the predominantly African-American school’s dress code states "hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable."
