Natural Hair Club at Columbus Alternative High School

What is the injustice we are solving?
We have started a club that promotes awareness of culture and inclusion. Our organization has become a safe haven for females of color to express their individuality and natural beauty. As an organization, we make our scholastic environment a more diverse place by providing resources and education for marginalized communities as well as an appreciation of their heritage.

Interesting project! I would add that an awareness/educational component about how our natural hair is what we are born with (genetics), not necessarily personal choice - whether someone has hair, no hair, oily vs dry, straight vs curly, thin vs full etc.

Sounds like an amazing idea! It would be really interesting if you could incorporate some sort of awareness aspect for others to understand what factors influence the personalities and beauty decisions of women of color. As a woman of color, I'm able to understand the significance for cultures similar to my own, but it would be very interesting to learn on a broad scale about other cultures through this lens.
