School suspends ban of natural hairstyles for black people

A high school in Louisville, Kentucky has suspended rules banning natural hairstyles in its dress code policies, as of last week.

Kentucky State House candidate, Attica Scott was fuming after learning of the dress code policy at Butler Traditional High School.

Scott’s daughter, Ashanti, was registering for school last week and discovered the policy pertaining to both male and female hairstyles.


On July 29, Jefferson County Public Schools removed the policy after parents voiced their concerns over racism and cultural suppression, reported WLKY News Louisville.
