Crown Giclee Prints
Limited Edition of 200 12"x18" Giclee Print 19.75" x 25.75" Gold Ornate Frame with White Mat, Non-Glare Glass.
Crown represents the past rejection of natural Black beauty and natural hair. As Black people, we have evolved to resist white societal norms and have embraced our natural hair. However, our self acceptance, has been met with resistance from white dominant culture. While we have accepted and celebrate our natural hair, corporate and conservative environments discriminate against Black and African American hair styles.
On the print, the statistics state:
- Black women report being 80% more likely to change their hair from its natural state to fit in at the office.
- Black women are 50% more likely to be sent home or know of a Black woman sent home from the workplace because of her hair.
- In many places in the US it is legal to deny a person employment or admittance to school based on their hairstyle, even if the hair style is inherent to their cultural identity.
The CROWN Act movement's goal is to end race-based hair discrimination nationwide.
