JACKSON, Miss. (MISSISSIPPI WEEKEND) -
Did you know that 1 in 2 black children experience hair discrimination as young as 5 years old? Many of them reported the impact of those encounters last a lifetime.
As more and more women transition to natural hair styles across the world, it’s more than a trend, it’s a lifestyle. That’s why the Mississippi Natural Hair Expo is the perfect event to support natural queens in our community.
