[VIDEO] TS Hawkins, LMP, Kameelah Waheed, Essence Revealed, Maya & Rajdulari Support Tiana Parker!

Seven year old, Tiana Parker of Tulsa Oklahoma, had to switch schools after she was told that she would not be allowed to wear her locs because school officials declared that [they] were not presentable. Her former school Deborah Brown Community School continued to tout "they distract from the respectful and serious atmosphere it (the school) strives for","hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable", []...they can have a weave".

LMP- Lady M Productions, reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in her video project. With a resounding YES, I am honored to have helped in a small way to give Tiana and other young girls confidence in who they are and how they choose to represent themselves in a positive way. Thank you LMP for always encouraging people to put their activism where their mouths are!
