These Gorgeous Photos Show Black Women Reclaiming School Picture Day

Remember picture day at school? Your parents made sure your hair was slick and your uniform extra clean and ironed for that picture that would last a lifetime. Not everyone looked forward to it, though. For some children it was (and still is) a reminder of the way the world sees them – differently.

Many Black and mixed-race women with afro hair will say they either skipped their school picture entirely or felt the need to alter their look on photo day, due to race-based hair discrimination.

In fact, new research by Dove found one in three (28%) Black and mixed-race women missed their school photo because of the discrimination that 42% of them experienced at school, while a whopping 84% altered their hair to fit in.

It’s these glaring statistics that prompted Dove to launch a new campaign to relegate race-based hair discrimination to history, rather than an every day classroom experience.
