For our September issue, Glamour asked stars Gabrielle Union, Uzo Aduba, Marsai Martin, and Keke Palmer, unparalleled Black celebrities who are passionate about ending hair discrimination, to amplify the stories of women from around the country.
Learn more about the Crown (Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair) Act, legislation that prohibits texture- and race-based hair discrimination in workplaces and schools, and how you can support it.
Link to the Crown Coalition’s petition here.
