My hair defines me, woman Black!

I was let go from my job as a meteorologists at KTBS in Shreveport, LA for a Facebook post where I defended my hair, and later Black kids. I’m pregnant now and feel there is still so much I need to do to change the world before my son gets here. :) But if I have to start with my hair I will.

    I think you are beautiful. And I love natural hair, you can do things with it that my “white” hair would never do. Enjoy it. The station is missing out! And blessings to you and your baby.
