Note to administrators at Horizon Science Academy in Lorain, Ohio: Banning “Afro-puffs and small twisted braids with or without rubber bands” is not culturally sustaining pedagogy.
Note to all Black girls in Lorain, Ohio (Toni Morrison’s hometown!) and everywhere else: We got you.
And it’s understandable why the Afro Puff is being compared to the ponytail in terms of helping people understand, but the Afro-puff is the Afro-puff. There’s no comparison. Let it reign supreme.
